"Over the last year we have had three interns from the University of Leicester to work in the Methodologies for Tools Department at the Alstom site in Rugby. We were very impressed with their technical skills, enthusiasm & pro-active work attitude and delighted with the technical progress each of them made. They all exceeded our expectations and made a positive contribution to the work of the group as well as gaining valuable experience themselves. Although they started with a three months internship, they have all retained their link with us, either in their own final year projects or as a part - time member of the department during term time. This positive experience strongly encourages us to bring more students into internships in years to come" Dr. Nadir Ince, Mehodology Development Group Head, Alstom
