What can the student learn from participating in a business project with you?

The student will learn how to work on projects in a business environment, which is often quite different from the university. The student will also learn to translate theoretic knowledge to real applications and developments founded in real products or processes.

What expectations do you have for the business project student?

We expect the student to be highly engaged and eager to learn as well as being capable of working in a cross-disciplinary project group and be self-empowered. Further, we expect the student to spend a significant part of the project period at our location in Bjerringbro.
