We were delighted to take up the offer of the Secondary School of Civil Engineering (SSCE) in Opava, as we presented our practical experience in wood impregnation to apprentices and students of Carpentry and of Woodworking and Furniture Making.
In particular, a discussion was held with the third-year students in attendance on the issues of why wood should be impregnated at all, how to choose the right impregnation product, timber use classes, impregnation methods and factors impacting on impregnation quality. The students displayed a particular interest in vacuum-pressure impregnation. This enabled them to supplement their teaching-based knowledge of theory with practical experience.
Graduates from the SSCE in Opava will find jobs in sawmilling, construction board manufacturing, furniture manufacturing, joinery, carpentry and similar fields. Their foundations of high-quality teaching and intensive, close-quarters collaboration with industry partners will make them in high demand among entrepreneurs and businesses when it comes to working with both traditional and modern skills and technologies.
