The work gives image of
the real condition of the cooperation between the business sector and faculties
of technical sciences in education of mechanical engineers obtained through
appropriate researches by using the instrument of survey questionnaire. The
results point out defeated facts of total absence of cooperation, miss out in
creation of study programs and profiles of mechanical engineers who graduate
and who are not compatible with the market demand. The research enabled making
difference of future challenges and suggesting possible steps towards problem
solution. As a result of the research, the Centre for Teaching and Adopting New
Technologies (CETANeT) was establish as a new institution to provide a new
concept for real and intensive cooperation between University, state and the
enterprises in the field of quality high education.
