Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Business

We maintain strong links with business and industry at a number of levels. Our Industrial Advisory Board, with members from local, national, and international electronic engineering companies, provides us with support on our taught undergraduate and postgraduate 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. 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 (KTP) scheme.
