“The lectures of this weekend were different from the other lectures, since this is
the first lecture held in English language, with little difficulties in communication,
but very attractive, as we were more attentive to what we hear and understand.
The lectures were mainly related to the field of Electrical Industry and this module
will serve us as a basis for our future experiences as KEDS employees. The Subject
discusses are directly related to transmission , generation, distribution and supply
system. Very attractive subject was that of Energy Balance and energy marketing,
this was a good experience for us, as we have learned how the contracts and
regulations are prepared , irregular and bilateral. The Professor has been very
communicative, attractive with the task that has assigned to us. It is a privilege for
us to have such professors and we appreciate KEDS for that”.
