Academia and Industry
Another way that industry and academia relate is the way I went through school in the late-60s, early-70s. I lived near Tektronix and got a job there right out of high-school, at age 17. Wow! For a 17-year-old nerd, Tek was like a sci-fi adventure come true.

Tek offered  employment to some of these youth so that they could be offered the following deal: for each school year, Tek paid school expenses of books and tuition, and the student, upon graduation, was expected to put in a year at Tek for each school year supported. In addition, we students were given work at Tek during the summers (as "summer students") and during breaks between quarters. It was an "optimal" way to start in electronics!
