Students at a Luxembourg lycée will get first-hand insights into entrepreneurial life when their school hosts six startups.
The spaces were announced by Lycée des Arts et Métiers in Limpertsberg on Monday as part of its Talent Hub strategy, encouraging closer collaboration between students and innovative startups.
Not only will entrepreneurship be taught but the school will open up work spaces for six startups, soon to be selected with startup incubator Technoport.
“Students will experience first-hand the start of an economic activity and discover the work in real conditions. Business leaders will be close to technological developments and will be able, during internships and summer jobs, to meet their future employees,” the education ministry said in a press release on Monday.
Technoport has two sites in Belval and Foetz, spanning 15,000 square metres. It also rents space at the 1535° building in Differdange where it hosts the Fab Lab, focusing on digital manufacturing.
Courses in English
The news was announced on Monday at the same time as the high school revealed three new English language BTS (higher technician certificates) qualifications dedicated to video game programming and game design; game art and game design, and The Internet of Things, to develop IoT systems. The two-year courses include an internship as well as participation in professional events.
In September, Technoport also hosted its annual BBQ game jam, a two-day game hackathon at the Lycée des Arts et Métiers to further “bring together the community”, Technoport manager Diego De Biasio told Delano earlier in September.
