Atlas is a Junior Enterprise, a nonprofit Civil Association, formed and managed by students, who belong to the Faculty of Exact, Phisical and Natural Sciences of the National University of Córdoba. They are specialized in diferent engineering areas.
Atlas was created under the global Movement of Junior Enterprises. It was created with the intention to help students like you and us to adquire experience for professional training by developing engineering projects. This will prepare us to be at the forefront of real jobs and real organizations before we finish our degree.
A Junior Enterprise (JE) is a Civil Association, formed and managed exclusively by undergraduate and postgraduate students, who provide services to companies, institutions and society, under professional and teacher supervision.
Students will be able to participate developing specific projects in any area of the association, (i.e. marketing, legal and finance, institutional relations, human resources and projects' management) to meet internal and/or third parties' needs.
Although Atlas is a nonprofit Civil Association, it is organized similarly to an enterprise. The bodies that make up the company are the General Meeting, Steering Committee, Presidency and all the departments: Marketing, Legal and Finance, Institutional Relations, Projects' Management and Human Resources. Each area has several members, one of them is the coordinator who is part of the Steering Committee.
When students join the JE, they start as Trainee members and during a semester they rotate through all the departments to learn the working methology of each one. Then, the new members postulate to be part of a specific area, where they work during another 6 months. Once this time is over, they are able to postulate to be part of an other area or as an area coordinator.
The projects will be developed for smal and medium-size enterprises and/or individual who need access to advice at a reasonable price.
You will be able to get in contact with real aspects of the engineer job, integrate adquired knowledges and learn lots more.
Also, the projects developed in Atlas can be presented as Integrating Projects (Thesis) if they meet the required specifications.
Atlas will allow you to be part of an interdisciplinary team and an international web of professionals and students of all over the world. This promotes academic, cultural and knowledge interchange. Also, if you join Atlas, you will contact enterprises of your interest which can be your future workplace.
Atlas is a nonprofit Civil Association, therefore, in return we can offer experience, training, professional contacts, scholarships, workshops, conferences attending, etc.
We are looking for motivated people to face challenges which require the implementation of knowledge, to find the best solution to the problem.
