Placement has been invaluable to help me figure out what I want in my career. Now I can go back to my studies being more employable, having more skills and having had an amazing life experience. Not to mention how much fun it all was!! Dean Ellison

My placement was by far the best thing I have EVER done. I got to experience a lot more than I could have imagined. Placement year will provide you with the building blocks for the future. At graduate job interviews you can talk about actual engineering experience. Julie Coulter
