Internships and Careers

All programmes are offered with an optional (paid) industrial placement (internship), which is an excellent opportunity to start a career in what are the fastest growing areas in the modern economy.


Although the responsibility for finding a placement is ultimately yours, our Careers Team will help you identify suitable opportunities, make applications and prepare for interviews.  Please note that progression to the placement is conditional on good academic performance.

We bring several companies to our campus throughout the year, both for fairs and for advanced seminars, which is an excellent opportunity to learn about what they do and discuss possible placements.  

Check this timeline, which details the different stages that students and companies go through.

These are examples of companies where our students have been placed, several of which have placed more than one student:  Autilla, Axonix, BGL Group, Cartesian, Centrica, Choosic, Data Reply, D4t4 Solutions, Disney, Foward3D, Gamesys, HACT, IMS Health, I.
