Description: The purpose of this webinar is to give teachers, career counsellors, educational authorities and researchers an understanding of careers which can be developed in the STEM field, specifically in the IT and cybersecurity industry. Our speaker Gonçalo Abreu, Managing Partner in MakeWise (Obidos, Portugal) will talk about his career and life path, sharing his insights on different stages of his personal development, from being a student and employee to becoming an entrepreneur. He will also talk about how technology is changing the way we work and the skills that are vital to thrive in the future companies.
This webinar is an opportunity to learn more about STEM careers; the careers existing in tech companies, the study path to follow, key skills needed, possible places of employment, and teaching materials to support you in advancing your learnings from the webinar.
Gonçalo Abreu began programming computers when he was 6 years old on a ZX Spectrum 48K. Since then his passion for technology and building things has only increased. He started studying and developing skills on his own for several years (when there was no Google or YouTube yet!) and then got a degree in Computer Engineering. After working in tech companies for some time, Gonçalo took matters into his own hands and created MakeWise - a start-up that began as a consulting company developing turnkey projects and now creates disruptive products using Computer Vision and Machine Learning for Transportation, Logistics and Retail.
