Industrial Experience

Engineering is all about applying basic engineering principles to solve diverse problems. As a school we encourage participation in work experience to enable students to gain experience in the work place.

Industrial experience studentYear in Industry

Whether you have applied for the ‘with Industrial Year’ degree from the outset or decide to join the scheme once you are here, a year in industry is an invaluable addition you can choose for your degree.

You will be involved in serious projects at the core of the company’s business, with training and support. We’ll be in touch with you throughout the year too. You’ll gain experience of applying what you’ve learned in the early years of your degree to real engineering challenges.

The Schools Industrial Liaison Officer, Jenny Steere, will support you in finding work experience opportunities. Follow the links below to find out more about the opportunities available in our subject areas:

The opportunities the Department has given me has allowed me to enjoy two summer placements, a Year in Industry (working at Transport for London), and I have a job lined up before I’ve even finished my degree. This, along with the extremely supportive staff and all the available equipment has allowed me to achieve the best I can and has not only given me a degree, but a career.
