A master thesis in industry can be an efficient tool to bring together academic research and industry. Exploratory research can for instance be supported by Innosuisse with an innovation check and result in further partnerships in the future.

A preparatory work is however necessary between the academic and industrial partners in order to be in tune and to propose coordinated master subjects suiting both sides.

We encourage companies attending the Industry Day to prepare master thesis topics and to discuss them with a research laboratory during the face-to-face meetings.

The identification of an objective suiting the technological developments of the company, and requiring a research phase to employ the theoretical and practical competences of the student is of primary importance in order to guarantee a Win-Win-Win situation for the company, the laboratory and the student.
