Making Technology in business count – The importance of Employability
At the School of Technology we celebrate established links with industry. We are experts in identifying the needs of businesses and responding to them, and continue to be in the top 10 UK universities for delivering economic development and regeneration programmes with companies.
We have supported businesses with consultancy, skills development and research in our specialist areas of computer science, informatics, engineering, construction and aerospace.
It is important that students studying technical subjects are given the opportunity and resource to become more employable.
Industry expects more from graduates now. It is not a guarantee that you will get a job because you have a degree. What more is there? Related work experience.
The school has over 15 years experience in developing strong relationships with companies through our provision of industrial placements. Businesses can benefit by utilising recently trained students who are keen to learn.
