Industrial focus

Several units require students to look at industry-related problems and incorporate live briefs into the assessment. Many students work closely with employers or local companies on projects and our students produce high standard work, which benefits both the student and employer. Students are encouraged to take part in practical work-based initiatives and the IET regularly holds local events.
