Collaboration between students and enterprises - discover all the advantages
In this edition of MCI Insights, we are highlighting the numerous advantages of the collaboration between enterprises and students.
Cooperation with students: - Fast, easy and exceedingly productive!
Fertin Pharma A/S is the latest company among a number of those who have been cooperating with SDU Sonderborg’s students. The company commended the young engineer brains for their inventive input. At the same time, they give a very glad smiley for the entire process which required only few resources but created large value.
Hackathon - Broaden your horizons with an intensive programme
A Hackathon is an intensive camp where students get down to some intense geeking to come up with creative solutions. The camp lasts for a very short period of time, during which the students drop everything to focus 100% solely on your company's case or problem.
OJ Electronics got inspired by SDU students
The Innovation and Business programme (IB) at SDU combines engineering, innovation, and business sense. And this is useful to industry. Recently, students from the engineering programme presented their ideas on how to solve tasks and challenges set by OJ Electronics during a project collaboration. The collaboration was valuable to both students and company.

Imaging – benefit from the Mads Clausen Institute’s high-technological equipment
SDU is not just in possession of specialist knowledge within a range of technological areas but also of state-of-the-art equipment. In this newsletter you can read about how companies can benefit from it.
World class X-ray equipment for academic and industrial applications
The Mads Clausen Institute has acquired a SKYSCAN 2214 which is one of the finest x-ray tomographs in the world. It has an incredibly large resolution and can be applied in a large range of industry applications.
Measurement of industrial components for LODAM
By collaborating with SDU and the Mads Clausen Institute, you can get access to world-class technological equipment and by this become a forerunner regarding the development of ground-breaking technology. LODAM, which is a producer of high-technological products within cooling, heating and ventilation, is one of those companies that has benefitted from this when they had sent electronic components to SDU for a closer look.
