University students collaborate with Factory2Fit

Automation engineering students from Seinäjoki University of Applied Sciences present their project work to the Factory2Fit partners in Kauhava

The Factory2Fit team had the opportunity to learn about the long-standing cooperative relationship between project partner Prima Power and Seinäjoki University of Applied Sciences (SeAMK) at the Factory2Fit consortium meeting in Kauhava last month. Meeting host Prima Power arranged for seven 3rd year automation engineering students to come in and showcase their work to the project team.     

The students from SeAMK play an interesting role in Factory2Fit. They are involved in developing effective training solutions for Factory2Fit using Visual Components software. The students contribute to the creation of Factory2Fit’s interactive web-based pre-training manuals on system use and safety in a 3D simulation environment. This academic year, a total of 23 SeAMK students collaborate with Prima Power.

The cooperation is mutually beneficial as SeAMK aims to serve local companies and their needs and to prepare its students for the marketplace, and Prima Power aims to attract young talent with fresh perspectives, innovative ideas and essential skills in the field of new technology. Through their project work, the students acquire project management skills, tangible insights into the real world of work and knowledge in the use of Visual Components software. Factory2Fit benefits from smart suggestions for development and innovative solutions to complex issues.

SeAMK School of Technology offers a Bachelor’s Degree Programme in Automation Engineering, which currently has around 450 enrolled students. The main focus areas of the programme include machine automation, electric automation, industrial internet and digital manufacturing.
