Our connections with industry enable us to help improve your employability.Sponsored routeIf you are able to attract industrial sponsorship, we have created a sponsored engineering programme to train the next generation of top level engineers. You are paid an annual bursary, and go on paid professional work placements with one company throughout the course. Each week during term time, you study for three days and spend two days on work-based learning with your industry sponsor. You also work with the company over the various vacations. During these work placements, a mentor guides your work experience. The accumulation of summer vacation work and semester work allows you to gain a sandwich degree in the same period of time as a full-time MEng course. The benefits of the work placement include better career prospects and personal and professional development.
