Strengthening the University-Industry Relationship: A Case Study of the Electronics Department, TEI Crete
Liodakis, George; Vardiambasis, Ioannis O.; Kartsonakis, Evangelos; Kaliakatsos, Ioannis A.
Industry and Higher Education, v26 n4 p301-307 Aug 2012
The Department of Electronics of the Technological Educational Institute of Crete (DoE/TEI Crete) enjoys good approval ratings from the market and its graduates have a high rate of employability. However, survey data collected over the last ten years from graduates and from the enterprises in which they have been employed, or have carried out their workplace learning, indicate the strong and weak aspects of the Department's curriculum from the viewpoint of the job market. The authors identify issues that may improve the access of their graduates to the market and which may also bring enterprises closer to the DoE, thus offering both parties the opportunity to establish internships for research. It is proposed that the time is now right for a next step to be made towards achieving cooperative engineering education and the authors offer suggestions as to how this might be achieved. (Contains 1 table and 6 figures.)
