Meyer Turku Collaborates With University of Turku To Increase Collaboration In Engineering

The partnership agreement increases e.g. student projects, theses, as well as teaching events, expert lectures, and workshops between the University and Meyer Turku. The employment opportunities offered by Meyer Turku in marine industry will become more visible on campus. This collaboration will become part of the engineering studies already at an early phase.

For the Finnish Maritime Cluster to stay world-class, we need to continuously apply innovations driven by strong research in the various fields of science that apply to shipbuilding. For this, we need strong university partners.

We are looking forward to intensifying our cooperation with the University of Turku, not just with the departments in the new engineering education but also with other relevant units, comments CEO of Meyer Turku, Jan Meyer.

As a university, we have decided to increase strategic partnerships in different fields of science and Meyer Turku is an excellent example of this, adds Rector Jukka Kola from the University of Turku.

Our partnership is a great example of the commitment of both parties to long-term collaboration. Our shared objective is to raise the level of engineering education and research significantly in the University of Turku and Turku region. Close collaboration with an internationally significant company also benefits the University’s internationalisation, says Vice Rector Mika Hannula.

Collaboration in engineering research will employ the expertise of the multidisciplinary University and the global technology company in order to develop new innovations and expertise. With this initiative, Meyer Turku also pursues more effective recruitment through closer student collaboration.

In autumn 2019, Meyer Turku donated a professorship to mechanical and materials engineering in which the University is opening new Master of Science degree programmes this year.
