Working with Industry

Joey Kish (Coordinator)

Monday, April 29, 2013

  • To acquire industry projects for a one-to-one mapping with the number of student groups
    • With a couple extra for good measure
  • Groups comprised of 3 or 4 students
    • 13 Groups in 2012-2013
    • 14 Groups in 2011-2012
  • June/July:
    • Brainstorm on possible industry partners
    • Email invitation to participate & checklist
    • “Screen” positive responses for appropriate projects
  • August:
    • Work to finalize projects & acquire Letter of Support for OCE application
  • September
    • Apply to OCE for funding
project suitability
Project Suitability
  • Complex open-ended engineering problem related to materials selection and design in manufacturing or engineering service
  • Engaged industry partner that is within reasonable travel distance from McMaster University
  • Ideally no intellectual property and/or confidentiality issues

Project Description

Willingness to fund project

Need to scale performance metrics

Need to scale economic metrics

Need for intellectual property protection

Need for confidentiality

intellectual property confidentiality
Intellectual Property& Confidentiality
  • Sponsor companies require students to sign a confidentiality and intellectual property agreement to protect existing company intellectual property and to clarify ownership of any new intellectual property that may arise from the project
  • Students have been asked to waive their rights to intellectual property arising from the project work
oce connections
OCE Connections
  • Funding available from Connections Program that Ontario Centres of Excellence runs
    • Students must develop their own scope of work, meet regularly with their industry partner, and deliver results
    • Provides opportunity for students to apply their knowledge and skills to an industry-relevant problem
    • Connections Competition for the Best Project in Ontario Universities
industry contribution
Industry Contribution
  • Industry must put cash up to a maximum of $1,000 on the table
  • OCE will match the cash, as will as the in-kind up to the level of industry cash
  • Apply on-line in September
    • Letter of Support & budget for each project
    • Award notification in November
industry participation
Industry Participation
  • Project presentations in September
  • Class presentations as grader
    • Proposals & Final Reports
  • Group presentations as grader
    • Problem Statements & Progress Reviews
  • Group reports as grader
    • Problem Statement, Proposal & Final Report
the good
The Good

“Real World” materials engineering problems for the students to work on

Ontario Government funding available to provide budget envelope not to limit success

Expose students to a wide range of materials engineering issues

Student employment

the bad
The Bad
  • Industry only cares about technical solution
    • No interest in economic analyses
    • No interest in sustainability analyses
  • Not all groups created equal
    • Strong groups vs. weak groups
  • Dependence on sizeable budget envelop that needs to be externally funded
