The Industry Stream

Students will have the opportunity to enhance their interaction with industry. This will be useful and rewarding to individual students in terms of developing applicability of their research within industry while they progress, and also providing a firm grounding in developing these type activities in future.

As well as receiving training in communication with industry through transferrable skills sessions, students will have access to a programme of invited industry speaker sessions and to ICMS modelling camps. Where possible, a matching service for industry placement opportunities will be offered, and each student taking this stream will be encouraged to undertake at least one of these placements during the three year stream (ideally year 2 or 3). For those students who do not undertake an industry placement, participation in modelling camps, and presentation of results to industry contacts will fulfill the scope of this stream. Students will receive guidance in undertaking a personal industry mapping exercise, and will be able to consult MIGS Business Development staff who can help to guide students through these activities.
