The course team have a strong network of industry contacts. This has enabled past students to work on live briefs and case studies as part of the curriculum. Students are also encouraged to seek work experience placements each summer - previous students have found placements at IBM, NATS and Accenture.
The course benefits from Solent’s extensive links with the business community. Recent guest speakers have included representatives of British Gas and Enterprise Rent-a-Car.
Industry liaison panels inform course design and development; we also encourage and support you to gain industry experience during holidays, or to develop your final-year project in conjunction with industry. Students then have the opportunity to showcase their final year project to industry employers at an end of year degree show.
You’ll have the opportunity to take part in competitions such as the Microsoft Imagine Cup. Students have also been involved in industry projects through our Solent Creatives agency, as well as the Wessex Round Table of Inventors.
