Work experience opportunities
Our Year in Industry programmes include a placement year during which you will spend time working in an engineering company. This is an excellent opportunity to gain practical engineering experience which will boost your CV. Many placement students continue their relationship with the placement provider by undertaking relevant projects when they return to the University and may ultimately return to work for the company when they graduate. The placement is assessed by two reports, a poster and an oral presentation.
Placements can be near or far, in the UK, Europe and China. Placements have been offered by the National Oceanographic Centre which is based on the University campus and CES companies based on Suzhou Industrial Park (SIP) in China. Students who take up a placement on SIP are offered accommodation at our partner University, Xi'an Jiaotong Liverpool University, based in Suzhou, China and they have access to all the facilities on the XJTLU campus.
If you wish to continue your studies at postgraduate level, we offer a range of master's programmes in addition to opportunities for PhD study drawing on staff specialisms.
Electronic and Communication Engineering BEng (Hons)
Developer Relations Manager
It may sound like a cliché, but as a child I would passionately dismantle my toys to see what was inside! Also I thought that since I was good with maths and physics, I'd be good at engineering.
As an international student from Mauritius, the University offered me a scholarship which I gladly accepted and was partly why I chose Liverpool. The course is interesting and relevant; at work I have to use the very basic concepts that are taught in the first year!
Working for ARM Ltd, Cambridge for the last three years as a Layout/VLSI Engineer has frequently called upon my ability to understand transistor level micro-chip design. Having now transferred to customer support, I'm still using these basic principles to help our customers and assist other silicon chip designers.
