Student Projects and Placements

Becoming Involved in Student Projects

Industry partners are invited to suggest topics from their wide range of business needs and experiences for projects for students enrolled in summer scholarships, annual theses or final-year projects. These projects provide opportunities for current students to engage with real-world problems and develop their employability skills.

Suggest Topics for:

Engineering Student Projects

Every engineering student must complete a final-year “capstone” project which allows a senior student to have an in-depth look at solving real-world engineering problems.

Student Placements and Industry Internships

Most degrees of the Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences require students to undertake professional internships or industry placements. By providing a placement within your organisation to a current student you can:

  • Attract a high-achieving student at an early stage and see if they are suitable for a permanent position
  • Allocate a project/review/research topic to a student to assist your own staff with their workloads
  • Innovate different solutions and new perspectives
  • Increase your awareness of emerging technologies in your field
  • Help to shape the future generation of professionals in your industry
