5th Physics Industry Recruitment and Placement Fair

Wednesday 10th October 2018 from 12.00 – 3.30pm, The Exhibition Centre, UNIVERSITY OF YORK

In 2017 the event was attended by more than 700 physics students from 14 regional universities.

For employers attending this fair it offers an extremely effective way to gain visibility and name recognition with physics students as well as promote internship opportunities, year in industry placements and graduate jobs.

This event is free to attend and exhibit.

As well as exhibition space, connect with students through Q&A panel discussions, run CV clinics, deliver ‘flash’ presentations or take exhibition space to directly recruit

Industry is back on the curriculum

We organise collaborations between companies and physics students

from the universities of York, Sheffield, Hull, Nottingham and Leeds

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 - Cleaner vacuum technology

When it comes to innovation, they’re already a household name. But like all true innovators, Dyson never misses a chance to get better. Our masters students are going to analyse the physical principles relating to air flow and dust pick-up in vacuum cleaners in order to understand from first principles and suggest further improvements.
