Team project

Team Project

 

A team project is organised within the university, with a team of students. You spend one academic year working closely with your team, developing an innovative project on campus. KU Leuven, Ghent University, University of Antwerp and VUB all offer one or several team projects.

KU Leuven team projects

 

The KU Leuven currently has six team projects, in which students of the Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Engineering Postgraduate Programme can participate. The team projects are organised on one or several campuses of the KU Leuven. The students work closely with industry professionals.

 

All the teams - except for the Solar Team, which recruits every two years - are looking for new team members every year. Apply here for one or several of the team projects.

Contributing to a team project: 1 or 2 years?

 

Combining a Master’s programme with a postgraduate programme (advice)

Most students combine their participation in the team project with their Master’s programme. This allows them to work on the team for two years. They often combine the theme of their Master’s thesis with the team project, allowing them to link this to practical research.

 

Postgraduate programme after the Master’s programme

Students who wish to follow the postgraduate programme after their Master’s are also welcome to participate in the team for one full academic year.
