Students have multiple opportunities to work with industry leaders. That is why the university is ranked third in the UK for career prospects (Guardian University Guide, 2020).
When at the UK campus, students will have access to world-class facilities including the wind tunnel used by Formula 1 teams.
In addition to that, the university regularly works with industry partners such as Dyson, and Rolls-Royce. Students can vie for internships with industry partners as early as Year 1 and some have gone on to secure full-time jobs after graduation.
