Collaboration for mutual benefit
The School of Engineering is engaged with Industry on a range of levels and through a variety of activities. The main undergraduate engagement is via Industrial Placement. These carefully planned and managed placements facilitate students working with industry partners in Ireland and abroad for 6-8 months (January-August) as part of their degree studies. Many students return to their placement company after graduation and Graduate Employment is also obviously core to our Industry engagement. The School works very closely with the SETU Waterford Careers Service in helping companies recruit our graduates.
Engagement is also central to the School’s Postgraduate and CPD courses. We facilitate employees of partner firms to up-skill and enhance their knowledge while continuing to perform their roles in industry.
