Collaboration courses

(Marked as such in the online TU Delft study guide)

For a limited amount of advanced IDE courses external partners provide real life cases made suitable to the specific learning goals of the course. Students value to practice the knowledge acquired earlier in their study on a real life case, going the premises, receiving relevant feedback and becoming acquainted with possible future employers.

To be able to look after your interests in the collaboration, TU Delft will make standard arrangements with both students and external parties. 

At the start of every collaboration course you will be asked to sign, if not done yet, the Intellectual Property Rights transfer Agreement. With signing you agree on limited use of IP of the external party, confidentiality- and publication conditions and you will transfer your IP temporarily to TU Delft. TU Delft will, under matching conditions, transfer the IP of the result to the external party, enabling this party to further develop and exploit your/the group result. Once signed the IP(R) transfer agreement is applicable to all IDE collaboration courses during your IDE study.

If you do not want to do a case with an external partner make this known to the course staff and ask to put you on a fictional case. Be aware that you will miss out on the benefits of working on a real life case.

Check the online study guide every academic year to see which courses are marked as collaboration courses. 

Hereunder the documents regarding the collaboration courses:

NB: independent from who has the ownership of the IP(R), the TU Delft always has the right to use course results for its own research and/or educational purposes, in publications and for PR purposes.

If you have questions about IP created in IDE education please send your specific question to the contract employee IDE education
