Bridge the gap between academic curriculum and applied work
Bridge the gap between academic curriculum and applied work
Objective of approach: 
  • Teaching
  • Students learn the applicability of their curriculum in an industrial setting
  • The students get an insight in how their future job might look like
  • The company can excite students for a career at their company

A dedicated (optional) course in the university curriculum to allow an internship (4-8 weeks) at a company. The student sees how he / she can apply the knowledge in a company and learn how a career at that company might look like. The company can motivate students to pursue a career at their company and as such guarantee an influx of newly graduated students.


First-hand experience for students to get acquainted with industrial setting.

  • Student
  • Company supervisor
  • Academic supervisor
  • Legal framework (incl. insurance, IP, ...)
Success factors: 
  • A mentor that will guide the student during the internship
  • Too big a gap between university courses and industrial application might hinder employability
