Universities are trying to develop various activities related to the approximation of study curricula to
the needs of the labour market. These are primarily changes in existing curricula and the creation of
new ones using the experience of industry specialists and inviting them to carry out planned activities
in the form of lectures, seminars, laboratories or projects. In this area, however, there is a significant
problem, involving the need to maintain a schedule for their implementation throughout the whole
semester. Highly experienced employees are involved in projects that require frequent trips or
meetings. Such a situation leads to the necessity to change the date of classes or lecturers and is not
acceptable from the point of guaranteeing high quality of the educational process. To ensure contact
between students and industry practitioners, shorter forms of classes are carried out as additional
activities. These are one-time, 2-hour lectures or short series (2-3 meetings) of seminars focused on a
particular technology or process.
The article presents the results of Computer Science students' assessment of short forms of activities
carried out at the Lublin University of Technology. In the study, the following research hypotheses
were put to verification:
H1. CS students want to participate in additional, short classes conducted by practitioners from the
H2. Students think that additional classes carried out by practitioners increase the quality of education.
H3. In student’s opinions practitioners from the industry have a lot of knowledge on the current topics
of computer science.
H4. In student’s opinions industrial practitioners are able to pass on their knowledge to students.
H5. Classes implemented by practitioners made the students aware of the lack of knowledge and
encouraged to take actions related to its acquisition.
The article presents the research methodology and outcomes. The final part of the study discusses
conclusions resulting from verification of the research hypotheses
