The Faculty of Science & Technology is pleased to announce the Internship Programme 2014 launch event. 2013 saw the first year of our Science & Technology internship programme and due to its success in securing internships for 63 students in 54 businesses, it is set to become a regular activity.

Students and businesses are invited to join us to celebrate the successes of the 2013 programme and find out more about it from businesses and interns who took part last year.

For students there will be a range of internship opportunities on offer, including some with the Environment Agency, and for businesses interested in working with us to host an internship, it's an ideal opportunity to learn about what the experience was like, talk to our Student Employability Manager Pam Pickles, and to meet with prospective interns.
