Maicon Ferreira, a Brazilian student of mechanical engineering, studied his international internship in the production engineering program at the EAN University.
Ferreira advanced Research studies with Professor Jeffrey León and studied the subject of energetic entrepreneurship. Thanks to this, the student decided to undertake in his home town after returning from his professional practice.
He created a project that offers solar energy solutions for homes and businesses. In the student's words, solar energy allows for long-term economy and to ensure sustainable development for the growing demand for energy, as it is renewable, natural, clean and inexhaustible.
According to Ferreira, the production engineering program-which has international accreditation Accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org -and its mechanical engineering studies, were essential for the beginning of his career as an entrepreneur.
