Distance and part-time graduation ceremony - 2022 promotion, in HYBRID format
Graduates of ID (distance learning) and IFR (part-time education) courses met for one last festive occasion - Graduation ceremony of the 2022 promotion. The event was organized by the ID / IFR and eLearning Center of the Polytechnic University of Timișoara and brought together both graduates and teachers from all four specializations in ID / IFR.
We are fast approaching the completion of studies at the Polytechnic University of Timisoara for the final years. This year is a special one, from many points of view and we have many reasons to be happy that we want to share as we used to: staying close with the help of technology!
And this year, the graduates were able to celebrate the completion of their studies according to their preferences, ID / IFR graduation ceremony taking place in format hybrid. A large number of graduates, teachers and academics were able to enjoy the emotions of a physical meeting in the Auditorium. Along with them, they participated virtually, but equally active and excited, their colleagues living in localities and countries far from Timisoara, connected to the event through the Zoom platform.
The family and relatives of the graduates were able to watch the entire Ceremony in real time, the event being broadcast LIVE on the account of Facebook and the channel YouTube of the ID / IFR and e-Learning Center.
The ceremony began with the word welcome addressed by the event host - Dr. Diana Andone - the director of the IDT / IFR and e-Learning Center UPT, followed by the singing of the traditional Gaudeamus - both by those in the room and by those connected online.
"I am very happy to see you all here today (…) thanks to the ID and IFR 2022 promotion for being with us."
“You are a more special generation, because in one form or another, the ways in which you learned (..) were a little different, with many more online activities; and compared to those of today, you were more prepared to communicate through online platforms with teachers and less through direct activities. (…)
In the years to come, you will have another major challenge - you will always be asked, regardless of the specialty, where you ended up… and you will answer at the Polytechnic. No one will ask you if you have completed distance learning, IFR or full-time education, everyone will understand that you have completed Polytechnic. And that means you have to have a level of knowledge, to show certain skills in accordance with the diploma you receive. (…)
With the base with which you start from the Polytechnic, I am convinced that, by making an effort, you will not have any problem. ”
“Be convinced that the baggage of knowledge that the Polytechnic University has handed you will help you in everything you undertake in the future. Never forget that in life you have to find a balance between professional life and family life. ”
“I am very happy and I congratulate you for completing your studies. I finished the Computer Science specialization 6 years ago, in 2016, and within this specialization I always benefited from the support of teachers. This gave me the opportunity to pursue a master's program at the University, as well as a doctoral program, which I want to complete this year. (…) I made a very good choice to follow this program remotely. ”
Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Information Technologies
Specialization in Telecommunications Technologies and Systems - ID
“I would start with a short statistic of this year's bachelor's exam, (…) at that knowledge test, the average of the marks obtained by those from ID was higher than those from the frequency, which means that probably there is more motivation. (…) Please do not consider that you have any differences in training compared to those in full-time education. ”
"I'm going to ask one last question to my colleagues, 'How long do you think it takes to make a good impression?' (…) We are at the end of an emotional experience, (…) the 4 years of college were one of the best periods, but also one of the worst. We thank the teachers that from ordinary people, they turned us into winners. (…) Be phenomenal, not unnoticed. ”
Faculty of Computer Science
Specialization Informatics ID
“I congratulate you for following this path, for your courage, for your perseverance (…) despite the rather difficult conditions in which we carried out our activity.
I wish you to continue to have a beautiful, professional life with family and friends and to recover everything that has been more difficult in these two years. ”
"Learning does not end at this point. The specialization and master stage follows. All institutions, all organizations - are being digitized. (…) I believe that the industry in this country is made up of polytechnic graduates. ”
“I am grateful to both God and the teachers for graduating from college. (…) The college years, of a disturbing and incomparable beauty, remain unique in everyone's life. (…) A week ago I took the bachelor's exam, a day with great emotions, but thank God, I passed well. "
Faculty of Communication Sciences
Specialization Communication and Public Relations ID
“We have a tradition of almost 30 years in teaching communication and applied modern languages, the first specialization being established in 1993. (…) I don't think it has ever happened that any problems are not solved quickly. (…) The faculty developed thanks to you, thanks to the students, you who knew how to make the right choice and to become the students of the Polytechnic, the students of the Faculty of Communication Sciences. ”
“Due to the pandemic, I experienced for the first time, as a teacher, the situation in which my relationship with the students was less emotional. (…) I had undergraduate students I didn't know. (…) The emotion is yours with yourself, less with us. We may have been companions, counselors, mentors, mentors - better or worse. (…) Life changes whether we want to or not, it is important to learn to adapt, permanently, to change. This is what our University has managed to do. ”
"Today is an end day and a beginning day. A new life awaits us. (…) I want to thank our families, who have supported us constantly and have been with us in all the important moments for us, including today, here. I would also like to thank our teachers, because they gave us the opportunity to discover new things. Things that will surely be of great use to us in all the activities that will follow. ”
Faculty of Mechanics
Specialization of IFR Machine Construction technology
"I am waiting for you at the master's degree, to continue this beautiful path. We are sorry that we had two years online, but I recovered in the last month… I think the meetings were considerable. (…) I want you to have many children, to guide them to the Polytechnic. ”
“I am glad that you are smiling, you are happy, we finally have free weekend, to be with the family, with the beautiful people in our lives. We want to get to a point where we have them all, but we don't realize that all we have is the present - which is everything ... and that matters the most. ”
Among those who sent congratulations and virtual messages to graduates from a distance and low frequency were members of the CeL team, both the technical team and the administrative team.
Then followed the highlight of the event - throwing the holsters into the air by the graduates of the four ID / IFR specializations, followed by the singing of the anthem of the Polytechnic University of Timisoara and official group photo for the 2022 promotion - both with those present in the hall and with those present virtually.
