As a full-time student you’ll be partnered with an industrial company, with the opportunity to visit the company at least once in your first year.
There are also industry mentoring opportunities throughout the course, with the potential to lead to work placements. All final-year students will carry out an assessed consultancy project with a company.
Past students have had the opportunity to work closely with employers such as Rolls-Royce, SAAB, Sea Eye, TUV and Coopervision on course projects, and participate in practical work-based initiatives.
The Institution of Engineering and Technology and the Wessex Round Table of Inventors (WRTI) have also held regular local professional development events on campus.
