Co-location with industry
Our environment is enriched through the co-location of academia and industry, providing innovative opportunities for our students to undertake placements, network and engage with a wide range of partner organisations, large and small.
Over 50 employers have been co-located on Campus over the last five years including Tata, Rolls Royce, Fujitsu, Pfizer, PWC, Natural Resources Wales and BP. Combined with the network of over 250 employers created to enable interaction either as part of the curriculum or through extra-curricular activities we have changed to a ‘networking’ culture to create tangible impact for our students and our stakeholders.
'The graduates that come from our Swansea EngD partnership are the life blood of our technical and management sections. Tata’s major source of graduates are from Swansea University (60%)' - Dr Martin Brunnock, Director, Tata Steel Strip Products
