Forge career connections during your studies. Find out if certain companies, organisations or municipalities could be suitable partners for your thesis. Consider who could be interested in the topic of your thesis. Participate in student projects offered by employers. For example, you can get involved in creating demos based on ideas provided by companies.
Arrangements regarding cooperation on a master’s thesis are agreed upon by the student, a contact person from the assigning organisation and the university’s thesis supervisor: nature of the arrangement, time frame and compensation for the work.
In the preparation of a master’s thesis through a cooperation arrangement, the University of Tampere’s thesis instructions (PDF) must be taken into account.
Student projects offered by employers are normally conducted as part of a course or unit. A project task can involve revamping the visual outlook of a company, organising a cultural event or updating a service, for example. Demola passes on student project opportunities from employers, but the employers themselves can also offer projects directly to the university.
Career and employment events organised by a variety of parties are held at the university. At these events, you can hear graduates and former interns talk about their experiences and career paths and learn about job opportunities, among other things.
The events are organised by student associations, faculties and degree programmes, the teaching and supervision staff, Y-kampus, the Student Union, organisations and various projects, for example. Information on the events is provided often collectively on the Student’s Desktop and through the organisers’ own channels.
Don’t hesitate to participate in the events of many fields to explore you opportunities from a variety of viewpoints!
