The Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing has a specialist employability team. It provides friendly and high-quality careers and recruitment guidance, including advice and sessions on job-seeking skills such as CV preparation, application forms and interview techniques. Specific advice is also available for international students about the UK job market and employers' expectations and requirements.
The team runs employer events throughout the year, including job fairs, key speakers from industry and interviews on campus. These events give you the opportunity to hear from, and network with, employers in an informal setting. For example, here students are practising their interview skills with employers at a 'speed interviewing' event on campus.
Our recent graduates were recruited by companies such as Delphi, Airbus or gained a fully funded PhD grant in the UK and abroad.
Their project work has been recognised in both academia and industry with a recent example of an industrial project prize, Autocar-Courland's Next Generation Award, sponsored by Jaguar Land Rover, Toyota, Peugeot and McLaren.
The automotive industry job market is fast-evolving and this programme – with its balance of theory and applied specialist learning – prepares graduates well for the senior technical and management positions in a range of fields such as:
