Talent development is very important to birkle IT

birkle IT is committed to promoting education and talent development and therefore offers scholarships for talented students at top universities. This partnership with academic institutions not only provides direct access to a pool of talent, but also enables a deeper understanding of the future direction of the IT industry.

In Lithuania, our Baltic innovation hub, birkle IT Lithuania launched a scholarship program several years ago, demonstrating the company’s commitment to supporting IT students each academic year. birkle IT Lithuania aims to ease the financial worries of young students by acting as a socially responsible company, ensuring access to the best IT talent.

Ugnius Spaičys, a 21-year-old software systems student at the Lithuanian Kaunas University of Technology, is the recipient of the birkle IT scholarship from October 2023 to July 2024. Ugnius’ journey into IT began with a thorough consideration between physics and IT, ultimately choosing the dynamic nature of IT over physics. He is excited about the possibilities of AI in software systems and emphasizes the importance of using AI for learning.
Ugnius is very grateful for the scholarship and it motivates him to further develop his technical skills, broaden his horizons and strive to become a professional in the IT field.

After the lectures, Ugnius can be found in the fighting ring:

“I’ve been practising Greco-Roman wrestling for fifteen years. In my opinion, it develops discipline, fighting spirit and the will to improve. It’s the discipline that helps me organize my day, focus and overcome difficulties, both in sports and academics,” says Ugnius.
