Abstract
In this paper, Electrical Engineering Education at the Master level is presented through three perspectives of collaborative projects involving industry and academia. The presented perspectives originate from three Portuguese Higher Education Institutions representing the University, Military Academy and Polytechnic School viewpoints. Throughout the presented projects, an increasing student motivation was observed, driven by the practical experience provided through the industrial sector approach. This cooperation also generates opportunities to develop new perspectives and ideas for follow-on projects as well as innovative academic publications.
