Give our engineering students a programming challenge during a Hackathon! Students work on your case and present different solutions that your company can be inspired by. A hackathon usually involves participants programming what they want, how they want, in a free form. A hackathon usually lasts for 24 hours or over a weekend. There are also hackathons where you develop, modify or improve physical products.

Does your company have a project underway where you need new ideas? Then it is possible to customise a course based on the project.

Is your company operating globally and in need of labour, skills, development or research? JTH's international campus programme ensures that students can do their internship or thesis in collaboration with a company abroad, usually in combination with academic studies. As a company, you get in touch with new competences while getting help with development. In turn, students gain international experience, which is highly sought after by employers.

An industrial doctoral student is a research student who is both employed by and conducts most of their research at an industrial company. During their doctoral studies, they also take courses and are supervised in their research. After completing their studies and defending their thesis, it is common for them to continue working as researchers at the company.

Taking part in new research improves your position in the market and strengthens your competitiveness. In JU's event calendar you can see upcoming research seminars.
