Electrical Engineering students visit Avast's Headquarters

Avast welcomed students and professors from the School of Electrical Engineering at Czech Technical University in Prague to our headquarters on Tuesday, April 9. The visitors learned about Avast's "freemium" business model from Martin Zima our Free Products Marketing Director, and heard 4 technical presentations ranging from "How we deal with large datasets" from Michal Augustýn, Senior Software Developer to an "Analyst's Life - fighting cybercrime and having fun!" from two of our Malware Analysts, Martin Šmarda and Pavel Šrámek.

Thank you to all the students for your questions, open discussion and an active approach to many technical topics. And congratulations to Martin Burian who won a Google Nexus 7.

Already this year, we have hosted students working toward their MBA's from Penn State University, Villanova University and the University of Alabama. If you are interested in visiting Avast headquarters next time you are in Prague, we would like to hear from you. Please leave a comment below.
