The School network covers a range of national and international contacts within the fields of engineering and digital arts.
By developing a partnership with the University, you can access this range of contacts: a network that includes funding bodies, alumni from the School, researchers in partner universities, as well as key figures in industry.
Input from industry ensures that our teaching and research is relevant to today's needs. The School runs industrial advisory panels, which meet to discuss a range of issues including proposals for new courses, industry requirements for graduates, funding and collaboration opportunities, as well as current research projects.
Every year the School holds an Employability and Careers Day. At this event, local and national companies give talks to our students. It’s an ideal chance to present your business, and any graduate schemes you offer, along with the kind of qualities and skills your company is looking for in a graduate. Companies are also welcome to address students on relevant topics at other times of year.
Sponsor or donate a student prize
Twice a year the School holds prize-giving ceremonies for categories such as Most Outstanding Project, Best Performance, Best Student and so on. Our industrial prizes are presented by the sponsoring company. Some companies also choose to lend technical equipment for our Applicant and Open Days.
