The IMechE have chosen Loughborough University to pilot a new placement scheme for engineering students studying IMechE accredited degree courses. The scheme allows the University to partner with, and award funding to, small businesses who can offer placement opportunities to Loughborough University students.
A £2,000 grant is available towards the cost of taking on a placement or a 12-week internship student and is payable to a small to medium sized business with less than 250 employees.
The employer should not have taken on a placement / intern student from Loughborough University previously, the student should be studying an IMechE accredited course, including:
- Aeronautical Engineering
- Automotive Engineering
- Engineering Management
- Innovative Manufacturing Engineering
- Manufacturing Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering
- Product Design Engineering
