Supporting the UK’s technical industries
Many of our most promising physics graduates turn away from industry because they don't know what it has to offer. We organise collaborations between companies and physics students from the universities of York, Sheffield, Hull, Nottingham and Leeds. They're high achievers, very strong in maths and science subjects with a natural aptitude for problem-solving. Their courses are based on cutting-edge research in particle physics, astrophysics, polymer and biophysics, semiconductor nanotechnology and medical physics. What does this mean for business? A serious boost to your R&D for a fraction of the usual cost. A rich resource you didn't know you had.
Supporting UK Physics Students
A physics degree provides a route into a wide range of careers. Careers that directly use the acquired physics knowledge and those that are more dependent on key competencies such as problem-solving and numeracy. We aim to encourage more students to choose a career in technical industries by raising awareness of the different roles that physicists can do; organise industry-led projects and teach enterprise-related content.
Case Study - Next-generation microscopes
This high tech company supply medical research, big pharma and hospitals with state-of-the-art instruments. We’re planning two projects together. The first aims to understand the concept of brightness and map photon flux. The second looks at low-cost alternatives to ultra-high resolution microscopes.
