Industry based projects

The School of IT has arranged for some employers to provide industry-based projects for selected postgraduate students. These projects require work to be undertaken on employers' premises during normal business hours. Although students will not usually be employed during these projects, they are expected to behave as employees with respect to dress code, punctuality, and observance of workplace rules and regulations whist on employers' premises. Industry-based projects provide students with an opportunity to gain first hand experience in current industry research and development practices. Some projects may also generate opportunities for further study in a research degree or employment in these specialised areas of IT upon completion of the student's Masters degree.
