Ways to get involved
Does your company need new talents? Is there a thesis topic in your company without an author? WIMMA Lab is attended by a wide range of students each year, and some only have an internship or a thesis left to do.
If your company has fresh idea, or an existing product that you want to improve, you can suggest it to WIMMA Lab as an assignment. You get to work with a virtual company where students develop an idea further and produce working prototypes and proof-of-concepts.
Company visitors can come to WIMMA Lab to share their knowledge about the topics of assignments or about general project work. At the same time, its easy to promote your company to students.
Sponsor a fun event for WIMMA Lab, like a picnic to a nearby park, and chat with students about your company. Promote your workplace in a casual setting and recruit students that are the best fit.
Guide students on their journey to professionals! You can assist teams with challenging technical issues, share tips, or inspire and encourage students to move forward on their career. At the same time, you get to know the students on a more personal level.
Events your company could participate in
Your company will have the opportunity to introduce yourselves and participate in the evening's events. Your company could e.g. sponsor dining and a couple of drinks to WIMMA Lab participants.
Your company can host a project-ending sauna night for the whole group, and offer e.g. pizza, beverages, and a sauna.
