Abstract

A new course Breeding Lab was developed and introduced, to better prepare students for the diverse job market. The course was set-up by Wageningen University in collaboration with industrial partner Hendrix Genetics. Both organisations played a key role in the course. The academic partner focused on the development and application of skills and competences necessary for solving real life issues in animal breeding and genetics. The industrial partner was responsible for formulating the real-life issue to be addressed, technical supervision of the students and evaluation. The two partners involved in the course and the students found the course as a valuable addition to the curriculum.
