DORACO regularly cooperates with the Gdańsk University of Technology by conducting and organizing lectures, workshops and students’ visits at building sites. The company is also present at the Engineering Job Fair every year. Since 2018, DORACO has been a sponsor of the didactic competition Mechani-CUP. The contest is addressed to students in the first and second year of construction studies at the Gdańsk University of Technology and consists in solving demanding tasks in general mechanics and building mechanics. As the main sponsor, DORACO offers paid internships on their projects to three winners.
Within the framework of the students’ association project IAESTE – CASEWEEK, Industry meets Academics, every year DORACO carries out an original workshop “Build a roof of the future with DORACO”. The victorious team obtains a paid internship at one of the company’s building sites, with the possibility of subsequent employment.
DORACO also talks with secondary school youth about the advantages and challenges of work in the construction industry. Since 2017, the company has been cooperating with the “Inspiring examples” Foundation. As part of this cooperation, workshops for pupils of Pomeranian secondary schools are held on a regular basis, during which they get to know the particular character of work in the building sector and try to solve a practical task prepared for them by engineers. Under the eye of specialists from DORACO, the pupils build structures of facilities using uncommon components: tape, jellies and pieces of spaghetti. Then they undergo load tests. Thanks to this, the participants become acquainted with basic rules of construction, learn teamwork, and their creativity is stimulated.
