We maintain strong links with business and industry at a number of levels. Our Industrial Advisory Board, with members from local, national, and international companies, provides us with support on our taught programmes, in terms of advice on curriculum development from the professional perspective and teaching on our courses.
Our Industrial Placement Year gives companies the opportunity to employ our undergraduates for one year before the final year of their course, and we have long-standing relationships with a variety of companies on this scheme. We have an active relationship with the Guildford Branch of the British Computer Society, which meets monthly on campus. At the research and development level we are actively involved with companies on applied and collaborative research projects, joint PhD projects, and through the Knowledge Transfer Partnership scheme.
Support for Business
We have a strong reputation for supporting business and enterprise across the University.
