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 - Aerospace and nuclear components for the AMRC
The University of Sheffield’s Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) with Boeing sets a new standard for collaborations between universities and industry. In the coming year physics students will undertake a masters level research project to develop next generation temperature measurement to control machining processes.
