Working With Industry
The School is committed to supporting industry and there are many examples of successful collaboration involving research, problem solving, consultancy, collaborative R&D and longer term strategic partnerships. We value the input of our industrial partners, and our Industrial Advisory Board meets regularly, providing feedback and advice. The IAB is made up of colleagues working in industry and organisations from across the UK.
Drawing on the expertise and facilities of the School continuing professional development (CPD) courses can be provided to meet the specific needs of the company.
There are many opportunities for companies to become involved with the School, including assisting with delivery of our courses, providing vacation and year-out placements, undergraduate and postgraduate projects, and sponsorship of our facilities. As well as contributing to the education of our students, all of the above provide valuable profile-raising benefits for the companies involved.
