We maintain strong links with business and industry at a number of levels.

Offer a placement

Our Professional Training placements gives companies the opportunity to employ our undergraduates before the final year of their course, typically for 12 months, from summer to summer. This provides an opportunity for employers to attract excellent students to work for them for a year, many of whom return to their placement employers following completion of their degree.

We have long-standing relationships with a variety of companies on this scheme including Sky TV, Airbus and Intel.
