Stu­dents at Your Ser­vice

Orga­ni­sa­tions with their needs and skills meet when people meet. Through student–company col­la­bo­ra­tion the co-ope­ra­tion pos­si­bi­li­ties offe­red by the Kare­lia UAS beco­me fami­liar to the com­pa­nies, stu­dents can gain a fee­ling for wor­king life and busi­nes­ses obtain an oppor­tu­ni­ty to make use of the know­led­ge and fresh views of the makers of the futu­re.

On-the-job trai­ning

One good form of co-ope­ra­tion is prac­tical trai­ning on-the-job. The trai­nee can take part in, for example, the deve­lop­ment of the orga­ni­sa­tion. The fresh know­led­ge of the trai­nee can also be used in tasks that otherwi­se might not be per­for­med, because of the lack of skills or resources.

Final pro­jects

Final pro­jects lea­ding to a UAS degree are assign­ments in research, plan­ning, pro­duc­tion and deve­lop­ment that ser­ve wor­king life. Each UAS stu­dent comple­tes a final pro­ject, usual­ly in the final sta­ge of his or her stu­dies. A final pro­ject is a wide stu­dy modu­le – it amounts to an ave­ra­ge of 400 hours of work by the stu­dent, which cor­res­ponds to about three months of work. For the stu­dents, it is also a lear­ning process whe­re they deve­lop and demon­stra­te their skills in applying the know­led­ge and skills lear­ned in their pro­fes­sio­nal stu­dies in prac­tical expert assign­ment.

Typical plan­ning and deve­lop­ment pro­jects are, for example, the plan­ning and rea­li­sing of a qua­li­ty hand­book, a busi­ness plan or a proce­du­res manual. Final pro­ject can also be func­tio­nal. In this case, the stu­dent makes a pro­duct or car­ries out a pro­ject, for example, a gui­de­book, a book, a model, an exhi­bi­tion, a col­lec­tion or a tech­nical device.

Pro­ject stu­dies

In stu­dent pro­jects, a com­pa­ny or an orga­ni­sa­tion may make use of an exis­ting stu­dy unit or modu­le. Com­mon endea­vours ari­se out of the organisation’s need for which solu­tions are sought toget­her with the orga­ni­sa­tion, stu­dents and super­vi­sing teac­hers. Kare­lia UAS has dif­fe­rent lear­ning and ser­vice envi­ron­ments whe­re stu­dying is con­duc­ted in the form of a pro­ject.
