Thanks to the course team’s extensive links with industry, you’ll be supported to gain contacts and work experience opportunities throughout the degree – there is also a chance to attend the regular ‘Happy Hour Digital Industry’. These talks are designed to offer an insight into working in the tech and digital industries, and are mainly focused on early career or how to get into the industry - with speakers presenting their journey and professional practice. Recent speakers have included professionals from LUSH Digital, IBM, Westermo and LittleBigBox.
We also guide and encourage students to get involved in attending local tech meet-up and Hackathons to practice and hone professional skills.
We have industry links through our Placement activities and also the University runs a mentorship programme.
