Services for Business
Where is your next innovation going to come from? Are you looking to develop new products, but lack the time and resources to do so? Do you want to explore new technologies through feasibility studies and prototypes? Do you feel the skills gap, and can't find the expertise your need to develop your business?
Industrial practice is both a source of inspiration and measure of success for our teaching and research. Co-operation with industry, co-ordinated through our Industrial Advisory Board (IAB), takes the form of mentoring, jointly supervised students projects and placements, consulting and training, as well as support in careers and recruitment. Please get in touch to find out the most suitable form of co-operation for your problem.
Would you like to build relationships with Leicester students, to keep talent and help them develop the skills you need?

- Projects, with groups or individual students at BSc or MSc level.
- Placements, as unpaid volunteering, summer or sandwich placements for BSc or MSc students.
