Professional development and building team skills
We're helping industry and business engage with our students and academics to enhance the student journey and strengthen our industry connections to our teaching and research.
Building relationships within the business community is the key to providing our students with the knowledge and skills that employers are looking for now and into the future.
It's also an opportunity for business to build upon your own skills and profile by engaging closely with our students and academics, through the exchange of knowledge and increasing awareness of your brand.
