Solar Energy studentsThe Engineer Pool allows for collaboration between companies and the University. We invite you and your company to contact us when you have an assignment that you need to complete at the same as your company offers an engineering student the opportunity to experience a real work situation during his or her study time.

The assignment in question can vary in length and can be adjusted to the current study situation of the student. It can relate, for example, to development, to a process, or to an analysis, and should relate to these fields: structural engineering, energy engineering, mechanical and material engineering, and industrial economics.

First Steps

There is no need for you to spend time thinking about whether or not the assignment is suitable or how it should be set up. That is taken care of by the Engineer Pool management team (see below), who will help to adapt the assignment: get in touch and we will get back to you promptly with more information.

The University will contact a suitable engineering student and establish contact between the student and your company. Throughout the assignment period, the management teacm will provide support to both the student and the company. Our students are accustomed to working independently, which means that only a certain amount of time is required to supervise the student in this way.

If the assignment should prove itself to be too advanced for the student, then teachers and researchers at the University can provide extra support. The work can also be the student's degree project if a longer period on a full-time basis is required for the student to complete the assignment.

Equipment, Material and Costs

In those cases the student carries out work that is not part of his or her studies, then the University pays the student a wage and the company then pays to cover the cost.
