Invite a student to undertake their degree project at your company
Do you have a project in mind that would be suitable for a degree project? Would you like help finding a student who is interested in your idea? LTH would be delighted to assist you in realising your idea by connecting your company with our students and departments. To facilitate this, we first need a draft of your idea so we can market your project and identify the right student for you. This can be done in three steps:
Step 1: Formulate your degree project offer
Consider which questions you want answered or which problems you want to exemplify in the simplest possible manner. The important thing is that the degree project seems interesting, that it will benefit your company and is relevant to the student’s studies. For inspiration and to see how others have formulated their degree project proposals, visit the website MyCareer.
As an entrepreneur, you own the research question and problem formulation and know what the degree project is supposed to deliver. Once you have a student in place, it is appropriate to jointly review the conditions and your expectations of one another. You can then design the degree project together, although the company must ultimately decide on its direction.
Step 2: Publication
As the employer, you publish your degree project offer on the website MyCareer. You can find further information about MyCareer further down this page. Before work can begin on the degree project, it must be linked to a suitable department of LTH and a supervisor must be appointed.
Step 3: Linking to the department
A business coordinator at LTH will contact the relevant department of behalf of the company to find out whether anyone is available to supervise your project proposal and match it to an interested student.
Should your proposal be of interest to a department but require further development, the business coordinator will mediate contact with the institution to discuss the project further.
