Industrial Placement Year: meet the team

The Faculty of Engineering has a dedicated team who work alongside departments and the Careers Service to provide advice and support for all students undertaking the Industrial Placement Year.

Industrial Placement Year Team

The team supports students through the placement application process, as well as during the placement year itself. We act as a regular point of contact for students before, during and after their industry placement, as well as liaising with industry partners who employ our students.

  • Signposting to year in industry vacancies

  • Tailored events for students seeking a placement year
  • Preparatory sessions and events for students starting their placement year
  • Pastoral care while on placement including the arrangements for your mid-year placement tutor visit
