Our Industry Partnership Program is a key initiative in our commitment to the ongoing development of the engineering profession and the education of the next generation of industry leaders.
We employ a unique delivery model that makes use of an international pool of expert lecturers, small class sizes, dedicated learning support, and cutting-edge simulation software alongside physical and virtual laboratories. This means that our program content remains current with rapidly changing technology and, in turn, ensures our students graduate with cutting-edge skills valued by employers globally.
EIT has gained momentum as one of the only institutes in the world specializing in delivering industry-driven applied engineering education, and we are currently seeking like-minded industry partners who share our vision of nurturing and harnessing the potential of new talent.
We envisage a synergistic relationship with our industry partners where our students obtain critical industry experience during paid or unpaid internships, contributing to industry projects and site visits. Concurrently, our partners are exposed to emerging engineering talent and benefit from the enthusiasm, ideas, and technology skills of our students.
There are many ways you can give back to the engineering community. You can connect with our students, from presenting a guest lecture, mentoring, taking on an intern, hiring our graduating or graduate student or by collaborating with them to solve engineering and business problems.
Students gain unique perspective, industry insight and real-world skills and experience, when they are able to work on real problems faced by businesses by working on industry-based projects.
We are always keen to add to our database of student engineering projects to test the mettle, persistence and brilliance of our students throughout the world. These will range from projects for the Bachelor degree (6 months), Master degrees (6 months) to our professional doctoral degree research (typically over 24 months). Any physical support with equipment or financial support will be gratefully received in furthering these aims but this isn’t essential.
But what’s in it for you?
We hope you will become a shareholder in our students’ success and welcome the opportunity to discuss the potential of a partnership with you in more detail.
