Speck Academy is one of our most important initiatives, aimed at building the capacities of young talent and equipping them with the essential skills to excel in the competitive IT market. We are proud to have collaborated with the Faculty of Organization and Informatics at the University of Zagreb for several years now.
This program is completely free and open to students in the final years of their university studies, including those pursuing a Master's degree or in the third year of vocational studies. It's also an excellent opportunity for other individuals seeking to enhance their IT skills.
Except for the first and final lectures, Speck Academy is conducted entirely remotely via Google Meet.

All other lectures will be conducted via Google Meet.
