DEI Open Day returns on July 16

DEI Open Day takes place every year and is intended to showcase the teaching and research activities of FEUP’s Department of Informatics Engineering (DEI), with the aim of exploring opportunities for collaboration with national and international companies. This event promotes thematic debates and informal moments, seeking to get closer to companies and society in general.

This year’s theme, “Working in Computer Engineering: opportunities and challenges“, will explore the flexibility of work and the integration of new productivity tools into the day-to-day life of the Computer Engineer. Indeed, working in Informatics Engineering offers dynamic opportunities and challenges, especially with the growing adoption of remote working. At the same time, AI-based productivity tools such as copilots enhance efficient and creative work, but require constant adaptation to change and continuous improvement of technical skills.

The event full programme can be viewed here.
