In 2019, Clevon Academy was formed to provide professional higher education for young robotics enthusiasts. A three-year academic journey to become high-class robotics software development specialists, studying and practicing under the guidance of experienced specialists.

In cooperation with the Estonian Entrepreneurship University of Applied Sciences (Mainor), we decided to do our part in educating young people and helping them become the top specialists they are today. Furthermore, we wish to share our experience and expertise to lay a solid basis for future developers who could help add value to our communities with their innovative solutions.

And now, we are proud to announce that not only have 7 of our 14 graduates from the class of 2022 joined our team, but we have also accepted another 20 bright-minded students into our Academy!

The study programme offers an integrated learning method. In parallel to academic study, you also learn practical skills in product development. The three-year study takes place at Clevon’s head office in Viljandi, Estonia, where the students get to work and study side-by-side with Clevon’s engineers. This enables the students to put their newly-acquired knowledge to work right away.  

According to Clevon’s founder Arno Kütt, seven talented young graduates from the first group joined Clevon, five of whom graduated cum laude.

“Students who graduated from the Academy are in high demand because practical training prepares them to meet the labor market needs. Clevon will also welcome on board those talented young minds who graduate from the Academy in three years.”

Mait Rungi, Rector of Mainor, added: 

“The opening of the second group is very gratifying for us! The Clevon Academy is a field-wise, educationally, commercially, and regionally unique undertaking and concept. This program is essential for our cooperation partner Clevon, the Estonian robotics field, and the Estonian higher education landscape, offering high-level workplace-based learning in ICT.”

During the study years, students receive a scholarship that includes free accommodation in Viljandi and a monthly stipend of 480 euros.

Estonian Entrepreneurship University of Applied Sciences Mainor is the largest private university in Estonia, founded in 1992, where you can study at the applied higher education and master’s level in Estonian, Russian and English.

Clevon develops multifunctional autonomous vehicles that help make home delivery of goods cheaper, faster, more customer-friendly, and more environmentally friendly.
