HomeBusinessCooperate with students

Your portal to upcoming talent

As a company, you have access TO MORE THAN 12.000 STUDENTS REPRESENTING DOZENS OF NATIONALITIES AND FIELDS OF STUDY. How can you reach them?

Each year thousands of these bright and eager minds complete their degrees and enter the labour market often joining companies that made an impression while they were still studying. That means that in your organisation’s search for new talent, it is important to introduce your company to tomorrow’s workforce as early as you can.

The possibilities for cooperation with our students are endless. You might offer an internship or master’s thesis position, organise an informative lecture during a symposium, sponsor a student sports club or advertise on a student association’s website. You might participate in a large student event such as the start-of-the-year Kick-In or the Create Tomorrow think tank, or help the university’s Solar Team achieve its mission of building the fastest solar-powered car in the world.

Student organisations

UT has a large number of active student organisations and academic associations. Every year, our students organise several recurring events, lunch lectures or other activities. Many of them are set up in cooperation with companies and other organisations that are relevant for the students. UT's Career Services department has a list of all student organisations that might be relevant for companies. 

PhD and EngD programmes

The temporary deployment of academic talent will create enormous value for a business or a non-profit organisation. The PhDs and EngD trainees of the University of Twente bring their scientific expertise to the work floor.

  • PhD

    A PhD student (also known as a doctoral degree candidate) conducts four years of research on a specific subject, generally while affiliated with a UT research institute. Many of our university's PhDs carry out their doctoral degrees in collaboration with the corporate sector. The doctoral candidates work in various fields of research, such as advanced materials, advanced manufacturing and mechatronics, medical technology and devices, wireless and remote sensing, and safety and security. In setting up the research activities, the needs of your company come first. Where do we see opportunities to create value for your organisation using the scientific knowledge and expertise of UT? Visit the website of the Twente Graduate School.

  • EngD

    A EngD may also be interesting for your company: the Engineering Doctorate. This is a multidisciplinary designer who spends two years at the university following a post-master's course and works as a trainee on a concrete task formulated by a company. This may be an interesting option if your organisation is faced with a challenging design problem or wants to solve a technical problem. Visit the EngD programmes website or the pages for specific information for businesses.
