As an MEng student you will have to do a work placement over the summer period, lasting from 10 to 16 weeks. As we have strong links with organisations in Europe, the USA, Australia, New Zealand and East Asia you can even choose to go abroad. The placement is a fantastic opportunity to work in a leading company or research establishment. You’ll gain experience that will prove invaluable – and you may well gain contacts to help kick start your career too.
