Cooperate with students

" Do you want to cooperate with our students?"

Howest offers a lot of cooperation opportunities with students. All of these have the same purpose: look together for solutions for real cases that you, as a work field partner, put forward.  During this cooperation, you see the students in action, you co-assess their work and – if you feel it click  – you recruit them after they graduate.  

Do you, as a partner, want to contribute to a bachelor paper, brainstorm or project week? Or do you see opportunities in a cooperation with a group of students during a whole semester? Please contact our study departments for a customized cooperation.  

Do you want to enter a work placement project yourself and in this way get in touch with fresh Howest talent? Please use the Howest work placement platform (*). 

In our incubators you can see students and alumni at work in their own start-ups.

Cross-pollination is important for new ideas! At Howest, we are fully aware of that. Consequently, Howest invests in incubators on different campuses. Students, researchers, but also external start-ups work under one roof on the development of their own project. 

We also organise our incubators thematically. This ensures a lot of knowledge in one central place. Howest students that are working on their own company, can get a free workplace in one of the incubators.
