Students will work on multi-technical, international student teams to fulfil product and production development commissions for various companies utilising Seinäjoki UAS's laboratories. Students will develop their technical expertise and skills in project work and enhance their relationships with companies and other actors.


Students carry out tasks given by their employer. They solve these in an engineering way at group work. Project groups are given specific learning goals for doing the tasks. The companies commissions are clearly defined development tasks that supprt learning. The tasks may vary from short-term surveys to more extensive tasks.

A commission may involve a survey pertaining to quality, the manufacturing of prototypes, testing and comparing work methods, and conventional practical and design work. A commission may also involve a company's completed development project, the functioning, need for refining or cost efficiency of which needs to be examined.

The commisions of companies contain business secrets and therefore they are always confidential.
