IIM/Industrielle Kooperation/Industrial Partner @ PIP

Industrial Partner @ PIP

Within the framework of Product Innovation Project, student teams are working on tasks given by an industrial partner. They are supported by the teaching stuff but are independent in choosing tools and methods to resolve the given task.

Read about the experience with the PIP in the company newspaper "ONE" (2018).

"Ich war sehr beeindruckt von der hohen Professionalität der Präsentationen beim Innovation Festival. Die Studenten haben sehr locker und teilweise sehr humorvoll vorgetragen, ich hätte noch lange zuhören können.Und ich habe mich mitgefreut, als mein persönliches Favoritenteam zum Schluss auch den Audience Award eingeheimst hat."


-Dipl.-Ing. Dr. Johann Hintner, Technology Management, Global Operations, D. Swarovski KG

"Besonders gefallen hat mir die Internationalität der Studentengruppen; ich finde das gut auf diesem Weg etwas für bessere Völkerverständigung zu machen. Es war schön anzusehen, wie die Studenten miteinander umgehen und wie unkompliziert die Kommunikation läuft."

- Martin Pfenicher, Head of Development Chassis Systems & Engineering Change Management, ZF Lemförder Achssysteme Ges.m.b.H.

"PIP hat sich als wunderbare Plattform für Innovationen erwiesen. Die Studenten rockten die Wissenschaft. Ich fühlte mich wie 18 Jahre alt mit 43 Jahren Erfahrung!"

-Dr. Leopold Bräuer, Head of New Technologies, OMV Exploration and Production GmbH

„Sehr interessant war die Vielfalt der Projektideen von theoretischen Konzepten bis hin zu handfesten praktischen Lösungen mit einer hohen Realisierungswahrscheinlichkeit.
Es ist schön zu sehen mit welcher Begeisterung die Studenten Ihre Projekte verfolgen, ans Ziel bringen und präsentieren, dies schürt die positive Erwartungshaltung auf zukünftige Mitarbeiter welche Ihr Institut durchlaufen haben.“


-Carsten Schmidt, Development Chassis Systems, ZF Lemförder Achssysteme Ges.m.b.H.

„Es ist eine bemerkenswerte Chance für Studierende an praktischen und realistischen Aufgaben arbeiten zu können. Angesichts der minimalen administrativen Anstrengungen seitens der Industriepartner ist dies eine echte Win-Win-Situation.“

-Prof. Dr. Theodor Sams, Head of Global Research and Technology Development, AVL LIST GMBH

“I am really excited about the creativity, enthusiasm and persistence the team at PIP continuously show. It is always a pleasure for me to  work with such great teams. We have a picture in our mind what we would like to have as an outcome of such a project at the end – and I have to admit: every time much more was achieved than expected. Thanks to the teams!
We have participated seven times as sponsor. And due to the fact that we are very satisfied with the PIP, we will continue our sponsoring as long as possible!”

- Dr. Roland Waldner, executive manager

“It was a great experience to work with such a great team! The students surprised us continuously with questions we didn´t pose ourselves – and with answers we would not have had. Besides the many ideas, they had also the time to do investigate background information to prepare a common evaluation of them – a very time-consuming job which is rather difficult to do in daily business.
Summarized, it was a great opportunity to work with a team of hightly motivated and skilled young people in a very well organised format!”

- Mario Fallast, co-founder
