Cooperation with Industry
Industrial practice is both source of inspiration and measure of success for our teaching and research. Cooperation with industry, coordinated through our Industrial Advisory Board (IAB), take the form of jointly supervised students projects and placements, consulting and training, as well as support in careers and recruitment.
Please get in touch to find out the most suitable form of cooperation for your problem.
Two successful parnerships have been documented as case studies by the University: one with ATX Software and the other with Comtec. There is a video on an Innovation Partnership with Hunter Systems Ltd, which combined consulting and training with co-supervision of students projects.
