We organise collaborations between companies and physics students

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

Many highly qualified physics graduates turn away from a career in a technical industry because they don’t know what it has to offer. At the White Rose Industrial Physics Academy, our mission is to bring students and businesses together to foster innovation and retain talent within Yorkshire, Humberside and the East Midlands. We organise internships, workshops and conferences throughout the year. So whether you’re a physics fresher or CEO of a FTSE 100 company, see what we can do for you today!

Our physics students excel in numerical science subjects and have a natural aptitude for problem-solving. They study cutting-edge research in branches of science ranging from polymer physics and semiconductor nanotechnology to biophysics and medical imaging. They are expert coders, laboratory technicians and statistical analysts. What does this mean for you? A serious boost to your research and development at a fraction of the usual cost. A rich resource you didn’t know you had.
