Tampere University Student's Handbook
Co-operation with industry during studies
Develop career connections during your studies. Find out if certain companies, organisations or municipalities could be suitable partners for your thesis. Consider who could be interested in the topic of your thesis. Participate in student projects offered by employers. For example, you can get involved in creating demos based on ideas provided by companies.
Arrangements regarding cooperation on a master’s thesis are agreed upon by the student, a contact person from the assigning organisation and the university’s thesis supervisor: nature of the arrangement and the time frame.The master´s thesis can be financed by a grant or work contract based salary.
Student projects offered by employers are normally conducted as part of a course or unit. A project task can involve a new technological solution, organising a cultural event or updating a service, for example. For example Demola passes on student project opportunities from employers, but the employers themselves can also offer projects directly to the university.
