External degree projects

Do you want to increase the proportion of external degree projects at your faculty, department or programme? That is, degree projects carried out in collaboration with a company or organisation outside of the university. If so, there is help available.

External degree projects are a tangible way to collaborate in education. Here, students have the opportunity to contribute new ideas that can be of practical use.

Various types of support

We at the Research Support and Collaboration Office can assist you with everything from identifying your specific needs to suggesting measures to increase the proportion of external degree projects and supporting you in the development work itself.

You can receive support with, for example:

  • training for supervisors
  • inspirational lectures with good examples
  • meeting places for educational programmes and industry/society
  • tools to utilise existing networks at your department.
