Final projects HAS Den Bosch University of applied science
Students of HAS Den Bosch university of applied science graduate in a professional setting. They are literally going to ‘put into practice’ knowledge they have acquired during their studies. Companies with a research question have provided HAS KennisTransfer with an assignment. A project team, consisting of students under the supervision of a HAS Den Bosch lecturer or a HAS KennisTransfer consultant, subsequently starts work on this assignment.
Because as a company you pay for the final result, we practise a professional approach. You do not only profit from a favourable price/quality ratio, but you can also come into contact with talented starters in a pleasant way. Under expert supervision students take their first steps in their professional career.
Distiction between internship and final project
A final project is not the same as an internship. In case of an internship, the student himself actively looks for a place. The student’s home base is on location at the internship company. Here he comes into contact with all aspects of the company and at the same time carries out an assignment. Necessary supervision is provided by the internship company. Internships are coordinated from HAS Den Bosch university of applied science, which bears no responsibility for the result delivered.
Final projects, or in other words: business assignments, have a different structure. The customer pays for the project result and the expertise and time required for this of one or more consultants. Of course, educational supervision remains the responsibility of HAS Den Bosch and is financed from educational resources (20 hours per student). The project team works as external consultants for the customer. The place depends on the type of activities and can therefore be both at HAS Den Bosch and at the company or on another location.
Organizations that develop purposefully have a need for people that grow along with them. Courses and training are essential in this. At HAS KennisTransfer we like to think along with the development questions of both course participants and those of the organization.
To respond to development questions flexibly we offer various forms of courses. Therefore, we offer courses with long and short enrolment periods, varying in duration from some weeks to more than one year. It is possible to deepen your technical knowledge, develop personal skills or acquire your HBO (Higher Vocational Education) diploma. Our In- Company training courses offer all desired tailor-made possibilities (content, form, material, location, etc).
In our course methods a choice can be made for a combination of contact hours and distance learning. Coaching and supervision can be deployed as desired.
For companies involved in the production and marketing of foodstuffs, HAS KennisTransfer supplies a whole range of services. Amongst other things, we carry out projects in the field of market research, food design, concept and product development, process technology, quality control and food safety (ISO, HACCP, BRC, IFS).
We are also at home in process optimization, residue stream valorisation, energy and water management, environmental care, logistics, distribution and business organization. We have at our disposal an extensive offer of courses for anybody who wants to acquire the knowledge of the food sector.
Economic growth becomes apparent in the animal sector. This stimulates an interest for innovation and knowledge. In this way HAS KennisTransfer manifests itself more and more emphatically. We are active in varying segments of primary businesses, such as dairy cattle, pigs, poultry and horse breeding, but also suppliers, animal feed companies and stable builders can make use of our services.
These entrepreneurs want to have all sorts of knowledge questions answered in the fields of animal welfare, health, market research and organizational development. Custom-made work is our motto. In the animal sector many projects are carried out with HAS Den Bosch students.
The green environment. An extensive terrain, but we know the way. You can make use of our wide knowledge and expertise in projects in the field of plan formation, layout and management of rural, urban, recreational, ecological and economic areas. In addition, we offer various courses in the field of policy, management and maintenance of golf-courses and sports fields.
You literally find growing innovation in Dutch horticulture. For that matter, the sector is susceptible to new developments. HAS KennisTransfer allows customers from the horticultural sector to share in its rich harvest. This implies 15 years’ experience, up-to-date knowledge and experts whose pleasure it is to absorb themselves in your business situation. Our professional research facilities are also at your disposal.
In the 21st century not a single entrepreneur will turn their head away from environmental technical problems in their company. Often knowledge, time, manpower and/or facilities are lacking to solve the problems. HAS KennisTransfer assists organizations with research and advice in many fields: Soil management, Water management, Landscape design, Geo-technology and Geo-hydrology. HAS KennisTransfer supports companies in setting up, implementing and managing an environmental protection system in a practical way. This system offers an insight into the environmental effects of your business activities and mostly results in a reduction of environment and energy costs and image improvement (ISO 14000 Certification).
For entrepreneurs and enterprising managers in the agro, environment and related sectors, HAS KennisTransfer offers a wide range of services in the field of management support. To broaden your knowledge we have a HBO-part-time Management and Business course and various in-company management courses and advice. And we have courses to deepen your knowledge in the fields of management, logistic management, chain integration, human resources, quality management and business analysis. Of course, this enumeration is not complete. If you are looking for management assistance in a different field, do not hesitate to ask us what the possibilities are.
