During the External Integrated Project (EIP) our students spend their third-year second semester (between February and August) working at your company. Our students have studied key foundation theory during their degrees and many will have already spent a year in industry on placement. This means you will be employing a student who has both the hard and soft skills needed for the workplace. 'Over the past 11 years the University of Bath EIP students have helped to substantially move our technology and business capabilities forward.' — Gary Davis, Defence Sector Capability Manager at Lifing Rolls Royce Supporting you through the process We'll support you through the recruitment process and during the project. Each student will be assigned an academic supervisor who will usually visit your company at least once during the project. They will also be available throughout to provide feedback and discuss any issues. We can provide non-disclosure agreements for projects based on commercially sensitive data.
