This session is for students from the Faculty of Science and Engineering who have secured an industrial placement for the academic year 21/22.

Making the transition from university to industry can be challenging, so we designed this session to help you adapt to the world of work and get the most out of your placement! We will cover professionalism, the dos and don'ts of workplace etiquette and more! By the end of this session you should feel confident about entering the workplace and excited to start your placement journey.

Time will be left at the end of the session to facilitate a Q&A!
