On October 10 it´s time for the first Energy Master Thesis Fair at Chalmers University of Technology.
”We always want to make our research more relevant for the industry and society. Our main mission at Chalmers is to produce future talents that help the industry becomes more competitive and sustainable. Our young students bring new ideas and skillsets and in return they get valuable real-world experience”, says Sonia Yeh, Professor in Transport and Energy systems, and Vice Director of Chalmers Energy Area of Advance.
“We have a total of 25 companies ranging from multi-national energy company’s like Hitachi Energy, Ericsson, Fortum, Volvo Penta, and DNV – Maritime, local regional companies specializing in power cells, hydropower, and renewable energy, and our research partners like IVL and RISE”, says Sonia Yeh.
“We are very pleased to see such high interest from companies wanting to work with our students. We will also encourage our community of energy researchers to participate in supervision that will translate practical problems into high quality theses”.
There are more than 300 students signed up already from almost every Master Thesis Program at Chalmers.
What can we expect from the day?
Some companies are open to ideas suggested by students, and some already come with concrete projects. It´s a great opportunity for students to meet company representatives to learn more about the companies and discuss these ideas.
Is it still possible for the students to sign up to the fair?
“Yes, they can still sign up online. We hope this initiative will help build a strong energy research and education community around the Master theses”, says Sonia Yeh.
