Industrial Placements

At the University of Leicester, we’re leading the way in producing work-ready graduates of the highest quality. To help make this happen, the College of Science and Engineering runs a range of ‘with industry’ degree programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate taught level. The 'with industry' degrees are geared around finding a suitable industrial placement to do with each student’s chosen field of specialisation, and career aspirations.

I got an internship offer from Jadu. Without the help and support of the employability tutors at Leicester, it would not have been possible, so I am very thankful. The sessions were great, they taught us a lot of things, and we were guided really well through the process.

- Shatadbi Roy, Computer Science with Industry MSc, 2014-15.

I applied directly to IBM India. Working with the latest technology, team of professionals and sharing experiences with them has taught me a lot. I've now become quite certain on what would be the most suitable career for me. This placement has provided me with a lot of experience about the real world, which is very different from what we see at university.

- Tarun Sharma, BSc Computing with Industry, 2016-17.

We liked Jiakang because he was keen and energetic, attributes that we value at Clansman, and we expected that his engineering knowledge and education would bring new ideas to our company. The fact that he is on an MSc course gives us confidence in his potential to develop and contribute positively to the company.
