Information for employers

The School of Engineering & Applied Science (EAS) comprises six different subject areas brought together by a dedicated central School Placements Office (SPO). Each subject area has a placement scheme which encourages students to complete approximately one year in industry or commerce. The placement is a sandwich year between the student’s second and final years of study. Students can commence employment any time between late June and September.

The principle aim of the placement year is to enable students to gain a much better appreciation of both the application and the context of their academic studies. On graduation students are better prepared to start on careers in their chosen field.
