Purpose and goal
A customizable preparatory program for research education targeting the electronics industry has been created at Mälardalen University. The aim of the program is to strengthen the competence of Swedish electronics companies by facilitating further education of existing staff. The program will provide the participants with a solid base and the right conditions for admission to and completion of research studies.
Expected results and effects
The goal of the program is to qualify and prepare for research education in electronics. Regardless of continuation after completed education, the program provides broad competence in the subject, increased understanding of research work and co-production between academia and industry, as well as an increased contact network in the electronics industry. The program is expected to strengthen the competitiveness of companies through increased skills and shortened paths to future co-production with academia.
Planned approach and implementation
Thanks to a study plan based approach, the program can meet individual needs and conditions to a greater extent than traditional education programs. Throughout the program, individual supervision and evaluation against formulated goals will be given with both the company and the student in focus - tailored to prepare for further research education, but also to maximize knowledge development. The program will consist of research-related courses and projects targeted to either industry or academia.
