The Department has a long tradition of successful relations with industry, with collaborations including research projects, supervision of undergraduate and MSc projects, industrial placements and student sponsorship.

There are three primary streams of interaction:

  • The Corporate Partnership Programme is designed to facilitate recruitment and other interactions between companies and students (including Industrial Placements, technical talks and prizes).
  • The Industrial Advisory Board advises the Department on strategic issues and concerns relating to research, teaching and our interface with industry.
  • Consultancy agreements for contract research can be tailored to meet individual company requirements.
