Industry is back on the curriculum

We organise collaborations between companies and physics students

from the universities of Sheffield, York and Hull

Supporting the UK’s technical industries

Like you, we want to see UK technical industries grow. We have the talent. We have the skills. But many of our most promising graduates turn away from industry because they don't know what it has to offer. Our aim is to organise collaborations between companies and physics students from the universities of Sheffield, York and Hull. 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 (e.g. nuclear power, renewable energy, telecommunications, teaching, research) and those that are more dependent on key competencies of problem-solving, numeracy etc. Our aim is to encourage more students to choose a career in technical industries by raising the awareness amongst students of the different roles that physicists can do; organise industry-led projects and teach enterprise-related content.

Case Study - Understanding fermentation processes

This world-class, Yorkshire-based supplier of components and sub-systems has generously donated a piece of industry-standard microwave equipment to make collaborations easier. Our students are currently using it to examine the chemical changes in alcoholic drinks during the fermentation process.
