Statements from the launch
The importance of the eSTART project was emphasized by the project coordinator Bogdan Orza: "Through this eSTART project we try to initiate and accredit in Romania a master's degree program in the field of eActivities, on a part-time basis that will also include new blended learning technologies."

The involvement of the “Politehnica” University of Timișoara in this project, presented by the local coordinator Radu Vasiu ”Comes from the older concern in the area of multimedia technologies, from the expertise in e-learning, from the development of interactive multimedia applications and from the development of specializations at bachelor and master level in the multimedia field. Following this experience and a need of the Romanian market, the idea of developing a multi-regional master's program in the field of eActivity appeared, as a unique program because it involves each university in the area of excellence it has. UPT is involved at several levels: it develops courses, participates in the development of the educational platform, implements the master's program in Timișoara. ”

Neluși Tănase, student in the eActivities program "I graduated from the Faculty of Automation and Computers and I wanted to accumulate as much information as possible in the multimedia field in order to find a better and much desired job."
Daniela Rotariu, student in the eActivities program “I have been working in Health for many years, with a qualification in Medical Informatics and I think that this study program is a very good opportunity, because today you have to have a very good knowledge and qualification base. I hope that when I graduate I will be better qualified, I will be able to be better prepared because the teachers are very good, they come from the best universities in the country according to the recent classifications. I am very happy that I was admitted to this study program. "
