Do you want to gain experience of an inspiring business collaboration and work with innovation and research experts? If so, apply to a HAMK research group. What’s that?
There are four research units at HAMK: the Professional Excellence, Bioeconomy, Sheet Metal Centre and Smart Services research units. Working in a research unit gives you the opportunity to get to know how applied research is done. In practice, this means things like working in the lab, running tests or conducting interviews.
Besides study credits, working in a research group gives you new skills in your own field, practical experience of research work and new networks for career planning and job hunting.
How to apply:
- Find out about the activities of the research institutes and research groups on HAMK’s public website or in Yammer.
- Then contact the research unit/research group you are most interested in working at. You can call or send an e-mail. Tell them what you are interested in, then go on to explain how the research project can fit into your studies.
- Talk to your teacher about the research group and its objectives. Then agree on how the work will contribute to your studies (credits).
