Abstract [en]

We present an integrated learning model based on an organized collaboration with  industrial partners in the surrounding geographic region. As a part of the collaboration, each participating student is guaranteed internships at a chosen company over the summer period. In the model, company based projects are integrated with some of the study program courses. Moreover, the participating students are given a possibility to perform their final thesis at the chosen company. We consider this collaboration as a "win-win situation" for the three parties involved in the learning model: the students, the University/faculty and the industrial partners. A number of positive effects have been observed and documented as follows:

i) the integrated learning improves the learning process for the students, where learning, knowledge and practice are integrated into the engineering curricula;

ii) The general quality of the study programs in the faculty has been developed and improvedbased on the professional skills as required by modern industrial companies;

iii) The obtained advantage for the industrial partners has been to establish professionalcontacts with the students as well as the possibility to be acquainted with potential future employees
