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
