Why study a Year in Industry?
Employers are increasingly looking for graduates with industry experience. If you're studying a BEng you’ll have the opportunity to undertake a year in industry between your second and third year of study, however if you're studying an MEng you can take a year in industry between your third and fourth year. It is normally a paid position and can take place in the UK or abroad.
Our students have undertaken roles with Mercedes AMG, Valero, Jaguar Land Rover, GE Aviation, Laing O'Rourke and Atkins.
Benefits of a year in industry
