Placements and internships

Find out how we can support your business in recruiting engineering students for year in industry placements.


The Year in Industry Team supports both students and employers throughout the application process and during the placement year. In the past three years, 750 engineering students have completed a year in industry placement.

Advertise your vacancies

You can advertise your vacancies directly through our free, University wide online jobs board - Career Connect

This is used by our students who are searching for vacancies and also to book themselves onto skills sessions, one to one appointments, and careers fairs. This means that when you run an event with us, we will advertise it on this system too, allowing us to monitor sign ups and let you know levels of interest.

You can also meet with the Year in Industry Team to discuss the best options, tailored to your business needs. To find out more about how to work with our students contact our Year in Industry Manager Claire Brooke at or +44 114 222 5933.
