The Culture and University Extension unit develops relations University-Industry-Society. Examples of its activities are:
Located in the heart of Bahía Blanca Industrial Park, it is geared to meet the needs of training and retraining of workers and unemployed, thus providing companies with highly qualified human resources in technical disciplines. Its School of Welding is one of the main proposals, complemented by courses in disciplines such as industrial instrumentation, piping, mechanical, electrical, among others.
Language courses are offered: English, Portuguese, Chinese and Italian. Also a system of external examinations certifying language skills.
Is developed with leading Petrochemical companies since 1988. Thanks to this have been issued more than 100,000 training courses to workers, helping to make safer their working conditions.
Is a training center in networks and information technology, administered by the Department of Electronic Engineering.
The major companies in the region rely on the ability of FRBB Departments for training and updating of its sites, becoming strategic partners through comprehensive training programs.
