Ignite Your Future is an employability week ran by the Faculty of Science and Engineering which happens each February and is packed full of activities with industry. This year we are kicking off IYF with the Faculty of Science & Engineering Student Placement Awards on Friday 19th February 2021. During the event six students who completed an industrial placement during the academic year 2019 -2020 will deliver a live presentation focused on their time on placement. A winner will then be determined by the panel, chaired by Liz Sheffield (APVC for Education for the Faculty of Science and Engineering).

Join us to celebrate the success of your peers and gain an insight into what you could experience whilst on placement. If you are a current student considering an industrial placement year, then this event is for you. Take advantage of the opportunity to ask the student finalists for tips and advice on sourcing a placement, the placement application process and how best to prepare for an industrial placement.

So sit back, grab a drink of your choice and sign up to celebrate team #LivUni with us!
