A graduation ceremony was held within the walls of the AGH University of Science and Technology to mark the end of the third edition of the postgraduate programme in air protection and energy. This is not only an important moment for the graduates, but also an important step towards a better understanding and management of environmental issues.
32 employees from 27 municipalities in Małopolska had the opportunity to learn the secrets of air protection and energy. It is worth noting that previous editions have produced 116 graduates.
The studies, organised for the third time by the Małopolska Voivodeship, have each time attracted great interest. The direction is a response to the constant need to deepen knowledge in the field of air protection. – summarised Kinga Radoń – Director of the Department of Environment.
The postgraduate course is not only about theoretical classes, but also about practical skills that enrich the participants’ daily work duties. The course was dedicated to employees of municipalities who deal with the challenges of energy and air protection on a daily basis.
During the courses, taught by experienced experts from, among others, the Faculty of Energy and Fuels at the AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow, students gained not only theoretical knowledge, but also practical skills. They cover areas such as air protection, sustainable energy sources, energy efficiency or local energy planning. It is worth noting that postgraduate studies also involve active participation in practical classes. In addition, students took part in workshops on self-presentation, public speaking or negotiation.
The end of a postgraduate programme is not only the moment when diplomas are handed out, but also a symbolic starting point for graduates in a new stage of their professional career. This is demonstrated above all by their commitment and determination in acquiring knowledge. It is also a success for the Małopolska Voivodeship, which is committed to development and improvement in the field of environmental protection. Postgraduate studies are not just about learning, they are an investment in a better, sustainable future.
The organisation of postgraduate studies is one of the activities of the Małopolska Region, carried out as part of the LIFE integrated project ‘Implementation of the Air Protection Programme for the Małopolska Region – Malopolska in a Healthy Atmosphere’. This project is co-financed by the LIFE programme of the European Union.
