The goal of this study was to analyze the situation of the cooperation between University and Industry in Düzce, Turkey. Target population of the study was the firms that related only woodworking industry. There were 242 firms according to the registry of Düzce Chamber of Industry and Commerce. But some of them were only the end product seller instead of manufacturer or supplier. Because of this reason, population of this study was determined as 154.  And this was the only constraint of the study. 91 of 154 firms were surveyed by the face to face method with 41-question survey. According to the results it can be said that Industry knows very little about opportunities and has little concern with cooperation. Also, miscommunication may be the one of the main reason of weak cooperation. In this regard, Technology Faculties are able to strengthen this weak cooperation due to its on-site education syllabus.
