Thesis and degree project day in Eskilstuna

Can your organisation be developed using new research-based knowledge and innovative approaches? Or do you have ideas that you don't have time to evaluate? Let a student do the work for you!

More and more organisations in both the private and public sectors, are recognising the benefits of involving students in their projects. Every year, Mälardalen University arranges thesis and degree project days, which are an excellent opportunity to present and profile your business and offer an ambitious student an exciting assignment with you.

How does it work?

All students conduct an independent project at the end of their education which is called a degree project, thesis or independent project, depending on the subject's focus and tradition. The degree project or thesis can be based on a proposal from an employer but can also be a study from the student's own initiative.

During the thesis and degree project days, you will get the chance to present your company and assignments at an exhibition stand, which allows for personal meetings between you and the students. In Eskilstuna, you can also give a short presentation about your degree projects to the students.

What are the benefits of involving a student?

There are several advantages of allowing a student to complete their degree project or thesis at your company:

  • A student with recent research-based knowledge can often come up with new ways of looking at a problem or an issue.
  • The student is used to taking the initiative, working independently and critically reviewing information.
  • The student is a prospective employee. This can be a fantastic opportunity to promote your company for recruiting purposes.
