Description of Content

This Industry Placement module aims to provide further practical industry experience on a sustained project hosted within a company which draws on design engineering skills, building on the experience gained through the Industry Placement A module.

The placement associated with this module will run mid-June to September, over the summer between the third and fourth year of the MEng programme only. All assessments connected to the Industry Placement 1 module will be completed before this module commences.

The UG office and module leader will arrange for students to be matched with companies. Care will be taken to ensure that appropriate companies and industrial supervisors are selected, which are prepared to provide suitably challenging and well-defined project objectives to students which cover the requirements of both this module and the Industry Placement A module. Companies will be generally expected to pay the students at a level appropriate for a new graduate.

The students will have two Dyson School of Design Engineering supervisors and one industrial supervisor. The module will be assessed by the School’s supervisors
