Student–industry collaboration models: challenges and risks

Abstract
Many student–industry activities have emerged in recent years,

and universities have invested considerable time and energy in

designing and implementing such collaboration models. However,

as models differ significantly, student–industry activities should

not all be bundled together. This paper examines student–industry

activities conducted as integral parts of engineering study

programmes. These activities allow students and industry

representatives to meet. The results are based on four major

components: an interview study, a case study of the Meet with

industry guest lecture series, a case study of the Industry link

project course, and a risk... (More)
Many student–industry activities have emerged in recent years,

and universities have invested considerable time and energy in

designing and implementing such collaboration models. However,

as models differ significantly, student–industry activities should

not all be bundled together. This paper examines student–industry

activities conducted as integral parts of engineering study

programmes. These activities allow students and industry

representatives to meet. The results are based on four major

components: an interview study, a case study of the Meet with

industry guest lecture series, a case study of the Industry link

project course, and a risk analysis of two student–industry

collaboration models.

Two very well-known, but markedly different, types of

collaboration models have been chosen, one collaboration model,

delivering real results to industry (e.g., project) and one

collaboration model, not delivering real results to industry (e.g.,

guest lectures). Both collaboration models have been subjected to

risk analysis, leading to the identification of strategic areas

specific to the particular collaboration model.

Based on the findings we suggest that, before choosing a specific

model of student–industry collaboration, a risk analysis should be

conducted focusing on the three key areas, i.e., Resources,

Framework, and Pedagogic considerations, perhaps not primarily

to identify specific risks, but to identify the typical risk areas for

the activities to be offered (Less)
