In the recent years the rapid development of IT industry in Poland has been accelerating. The number of firms has increased. It resulted in bigger variety of demands in the employees’ skills range. Each firm uses a different set of technologies and tools. It is impossible to train a “universal” student who will be well prepared to work in all IT firms. It became necessary to vary studies’ programs to adjust them to various demands. It made universities interested in cooperation with firms. Also the firms started to be interested in influencing a studies schedule.
