Abstract

Collaboration between universities, industries and other professional societies enables students to enter interdisciplinary learning environments through joint research. Stakeholders can attain their objectives through collaboration and a range of competitive advantages in own business sector. From an economic perspective, the fruits of research and development such as intelligent property are motivators for collaboration. From an educational perspective, this three party collaboration provides opportunities for situated learning that link theoretical studies with practical research work. This chapter discusses the contributions to the learning environment from collaboration between education, research and industry, and their impact on the professional growth of engineering graduates in the field of Material Science. Through self-reflection on experience, author argued that by combining theoretical knowledge from university education and research with practical skills and experience gained from the industry, students develop individual empowerment and bring future business advantages to the industries where they would later work.
