Let's BUILD a relationship

Student
Collaborate as an ITU student

Throughout your studies you accumulate a lot of theoretical knowledge and methods that are quite fruitful once applied in a practical setting.

BUILD lab gives you an opportunity to collaborate with the industry and apply your knowledge in a meaningful way. Conducting a project within an organization or with organization’s provided data and communicating its outcome will give you the best practical experience and significant gratification, whether you have qualitative or quantitative backgrounds.

Business
Collaborate as a member from the industry

Building up a relationship with BUILD lab will establish your presence within the ITU: allowing students to know your business and ambitions.

BUILD lab brings your business together with students to work along your current challenges and jointly create valuable innovations. Whether it is enhancing your business data through applied ML and AI methods. Or to suggest process improvements through generating data from exploratory field work.

Getting in touch with the BUILD lab will allow you to co-act on either of these joint activities:
Database
What is the BUILD lab’s database?

To promote innovation with quantitative data, BUILD lab is hosting a database where different ITU individuals can access and work with data. In doing so, students are able to use it for their projects and theses, researchers for research purposes, and teachers can use it as case examples for their courses.

All data related projects are thus expected to be open and stored on BUILD lab’s GitHub. Findings and data learnings would then be communicated to teachers, industry and future students wanting to take the project further.

The sources of the data can be segmented into 3 categories: project, open, and licensed. The database can be accessed through our front end. Contact build@itu.dk or drop by if you are interested in acquiring access.

1. Project Data

Case specific data that has been accumulated from extant data analytics projects.

Private and public sector data cover well-maintained sets from previous cases with specific purposes.

BUILD stores current cases in cleaned and standardized datasets that are available on request and downloadable for further use.

2. Open Data

Public data provided by various entities and governmental institutions that is available online.

Both quantitative and qualitative data exist with various degrees in quality and completeness depending on the source.

BUILD aggregates a non-exhaustive collection linking to valuable open sources you can access for your purpose.

3. Licensed Data

Private sector data providing commercially serviced insights on small, medium, and stock companies world-wide.

These numerical and textual sources triangulate firm success, organizational structure, and corporate statements, in Europe, Asia, USA.

BUILD provides access to continuously updated data for every member of ITU within our internet network via mergent.itu.dk.

Events

Through out the year, BUILD lab will be organizing workshops, events, hackathons and more. The activities are aimed to further develop skills that enable individuals achieve more with data and some will cover existing or new innovations happening in society and brace the importance of understanding them. 

Some activities are dedicated for students, while others invite both  activities are dedicated for students, while others are open to external people with the intention to bring networking opportunities within the university.
