Nicole Perrin and Lorenzo Cioni, undergraduates from Loughborough University’s Department of Chemical Engineering, give an insight into their industrial placement year with GSK, alongside Greg Simmonds, a Loughborough Engineering Graduate, now employed by GSK as an Engineering Operations Manager.
Working with business
Enterprise is a key part of the Department's and the School of Aeronautical, Automotive, Chemical and Materials Engineering's activities and we have a strong tradition of working with industry, from small to medium-sized organisations to global brands.
These partnerships strengthen the relevance of our teaching and research. They deliver impact, increasing profitability and sustainability by injecting innovation into products and processes.
Working with our academics
Connecting with our specialist knowledge and first-class research facilities can help you to innovate, expand or improve performance. There are many ways for you to engage, and for some of these we are able to help access and leverage funding from other sources.
Work with our students and graduates
You can add fresh ideas, energy and skills to your organisation with a student placement or by recruiting our graduates.
We partner with a wide range of companies in the aeronautical and automotive sectors to deliver teaching and research programmes aligned to their technical and commercial needs. As a result, our graduates are well-qualified, experienced, and highly sought after.
We value your expertise. Please ask us about becoming a Guest Lecturer, to help future professionals learn from your experience. Our students enjoy hearing about current projects, and offers to visit project sites are also very welcome.
