We have been cooperating with VSB - Technical University of Ostrava for almost the entire existence of ABB Operation Center in Ostrava, which has been operating in Ostrava for almost 20 years. Quality of the graduates is a key factor for us, and therefore our technical experts are involved in teaching at VŠB-TUO by means of thematic lectures especially in the Department of Electrical Power Engineering. Mutual synergy is going on in the area of bachelor and diploma theses too.
State of the art laboratories are an integral part of the quality of technical education. ABB is glad to take part in their modernization, including involvement in the creation of new laboratory tasks. It is for example high voltage laboratory as well as laboratories of power plants and electrical machines and apparatus.
Cooperation in research and development is represented by projects under Technology Agency of the Czech Republic, which ABB operates as application guarantor and takes part in development of sophisticated systems for control of process equipment or control of power flow in electrical networks.
Innovations and development are an integral part of ABB all around the world, and we really appreciate that we can participate in this in Ostrava in cooperation with VSB-TUO too and thus contribute to mutual goal which is to increase attractiveness of technical fields of study and professions. I believe that this long-term cooperation will go on and develop.
