Numerous studies among employers in the ICT field indicated significant gaps in soft competences and ICT skills of Computer Science graduates. Lublin University of Technology (LUT) in 2014-2015 realized European project "Mega competent graduate computer science LUT directed to the demands of employers". Activities implemented during the project led to expanding and strengthening university / industry experience. Aims of the project were presented in the paper. One of them was closing the competency gaps among graduates in Computer Science. The following activities related to the organization of additional training for students were carried out:
• workshops with practitioners raising analysis competences: ”Tools to team programming”, ”Methodologies and tools for application testing”, ”Mobile programming”, ”GUI interface design”, ”Generic programming”;
• seminars with practitioners raising entrepreneurship competences: ”Simulation game decision-making”, ”Projects package management”;
• workshops raising soft competences: ”Professional autopresentation”, ”Effective business plan”;
