School placements team reach the century

The School of Computing placements team are pleased to announce 100 students have secured industry placements for the next academic year. The Placement Officers, Sian Robson and Katie Van Sanden are delighted to reach the century milestone again this year and hope to see this number rise over the next few months.

The students will undertake a range of roles from business analysts and project-management to web-development, software/application development, software engineering and IT/networks support, in a mix of companies including IBM, SKY, BT and Morgan Stanley.

All undergraduate and most Master’s students in the School of Computing have the option of adding an industrial placement to their degree programme and many placement students go on to start their graduate careers at their placement organisation.
