Our DUDEs on the road: Coding in Portugal

Based on their academic merits, 10 of Centria’s IT & Business students including four of our DUDEs have been selected to take part in the “START-IT” project. It is an EU funded intensive app development coding project held in Porto, Portugal from the 14th to the 24th of September 2022 with 50 students from six EU countries.

The project aims to help the students build their soft and future skills including digital skills while promoting internationalization. For the students it involves long hours of coding and several presentations to various audiences. The students will be supervised by mentors and experts in the field. They will be assigned to multi-disciplinary and multi-national teams that will develop a business plan and a mobile app addressing the Erasmus+ horizontal “Climate Change” goal. The apps build during the project will be driven by the needs of “real-world” clients such as local business.

We are so proud of our students and cannot wait to hear about their experience in Portugal!
