Possible channels of collaboration include:

Industrial Placement

Our BSc and BA product design students who are registered for a sandwich course can spend their third year in industry. For more information you can either contact myself or the placement office, email:, Tel: 0115 848 6426


Student Project

During the final year of their studies, our student can work with an industrial organisation on their final year project. The project is normally a short-term research project with well-defined objectives.


PhD/MPhil Research Collaboration

PhD/MPhil  research is a suitable option to work on long-term projects. In this option the company will provide support (or partial support) to a student to work on solving complex problems or providing solutions for long-term problems with significant contribution to knowledge.


Postdoctoral  Research Collaboration

For problems that require experienced researcher, a post-doctoral researcher can be funded by the industrial collaborator  to investigate solutions to complex problems that would require extensive research and development.



This option can be used to solve short-term complex problems. If you think you need the expertise that I possess for solving some of the engineering/management   problems, please do not hesitate to contact me.
