As he said, every year the City provides support to students and pupils through scholarships and around BAM 1.5 million is earmarked for this purpose.
,,We are also working on infrastructure, so now we have about a kilometre of new LED lighting at the campus, and the plan is to renovate the sports grounds within the campus’’, Radojicic said, emphasizing that the City of Banja Luka is cooperating with a number of faculties at the University.
After signing the Student Traineeship Protocol, Mayor Radojicic was briefed on the road construction plan at the campus, the construction of a pre-school educational institution (kindergarten), the landscaping of the campus and the solving of parking issues at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and the Faculty of Economics. The rector and mayor then went around the campus, where new LED lighting was installed.
