Cooperation with Kaplaaki
How to combine working life and the latest competences? Kaplaaki is an association of Industrial Engineering and Management (IEM) students at the LUT University. Kaplaaki has been bringing LUT’s IEM students together ever since 1974. The key objectives of the guild’s activities include advocating for the members, the promotion of studies and the organisation of benefits and additional activities to counterbalance studies.
The guild aims to bring companies and members closer together. As a result, it provides its members with an opportunity to get to know the business world starting in the first year of studying. Kaplaaki cooperates with companies representing various fields, for example, by organising interesting events where companies and students can network with each other. Kaplaaki aims to involve companies as extensively as possible so that its activities bring clear added value for both students and companies.
The goal of Kaplaaki is to particularly develop its long-term cooperation with companies. A significant goal of the cooperation is to enable Kaplaaki’s partners to get to know future top experts from the university world face-to-face. Agreements tailored for each company are always concluded with the partners to ensure that the partnership is as comprehensive as possible and benefits both parties.

- Adverts in student overalls
