Work based learning is often students first experience into the real world of work, giving them an opportunity to apply and enhance the knowledge and skills developed through their course work to real life work scenarios; explore organisations or work sectors they may be interested in and gaining some valuable life experience.
Work placement for SETU Waterford students is coordinated on a departmental basis. If as an employer, you are interested in engaging with SETU Waterford to offer a student work placement, please find the list of programmes on our placement registry below that indicates the duration, commencement date of placement and point of contact. The Careers Development Centre is happy to help you with these introductions as well.
Industry Project Opportunities are particularly welcomed by WIT. You can set projects or case studies for student groups and many academic staff will use these in their teaching. These can relate to a business issue or challenge you need resolving. To allow for planning, organisations should send projects to us in spring for the following autumn term and September for the spring term.
Similar to Industry projects, a student may be able to use your project for their final year dissertation, researching problems and suggesting solutions. These are selected by students in the spring to be completed for the following year.
To offer an Industry Project or Dissertation Project opportunity, please contact the careers team at [email protected] or 051-302038 where we can put you in touch with the relevant course contact.
