Providing solutions

As a department we have a strong tradition for working with industry. The partnerships we build with external organisations strengthen the relevance of our teaching and our research.

Student and graduate recruitment

Add fresh ideas, energy and skills to your organisation with a student placement or graduate recruitment. Whether you need someone long-term or for a specific project on a fixed-term contract, our high calibre students and graduates are consistently sought after by top employers.

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP)

As a department we can support you to develop the strategic growth of your business, with a Knowledge Transfer Partnership project that provides appropriate research expertise and access to innovative ideas and skills.


Our professional and commercially-orientated consultancy service can team you up with our experts to help solve complex or time-critical challenges, enabling your organisation to remain competitive and progressive.
