We currently manage the "Year in Industry" students for Cardiff University's School of Engineering, placing students from the following courses:
- Architectural Engineering
- Civil Engineering
- Civil & Environmental Engineering
- Electrical & Electronic Engineering
- Integrated Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering
- Medical Engineering
Anecdotal evidence show that students who take a sandwich year often get better results in their degree. Placements are usually for a minimum of 48 weeks and normally take place between the students’ 2nd and 3rd years of their degree courses. Whilst 48 weeks is normally the minimum length of a placement, by mutual agreement between the employer and student it can last longer.
Currently, Symmons Madge Associates place around one hundred students per year in employment, under the Year in Industry [YiI] initiative. The work placement takes place during the students’ third year at the university; these students will be studying for either a BEng or MEng degree.
Note: There is no charge to the employer for our service.
