Times Higher Leadership and Management Awards Departmental ICT Initiative of the Year

June 14

At the Times Higher Leadership and Management Awards, our school won the award for the “Departmental ICT Initiative of the Year”.

Loughborough University's School of Aeronautical, Automotive, Chemical and Materials Engineering used consultations with staff and students, to develop an enhanced information and communications technology (ICT) system to improve administration of its industrial placement processes. A high proportion of our students take a 12-month industrial sandwich placement (DIS) during their undergraduate programme; the scheme provides valuable workplace experience for our students and enhances their employability skills.  Our in-house record system for Personal Tutorials, Co-Tutor, was upgraded to keep industrial placement information in an organised central repository; it monitors the submission of health and safety forms, makes allocating placement supervisors quick and easy, and ensures that placement information is kept in line with the Data Protection Act. To date, it has facilitated more than 700 industrial placements. “The judges particularly recognised the imaginative yet highly systematic approach to collaboration between staff, students and developers that drove the success."
