The ESTnet Year in Industry Project - Meet the Future of Your Company

CareersThe ESTnet would like to offer your company the opportunity to take part in the ESTnet Year in Industry Project for 2016-2017, giving your company motivated young people trained in your company culture.

The ESTnet Undergraduate Year in Industry Project aims to increase the number of work-ready graduates entering the technology industry in Wales. Benefits to your company include:

  • The opportunity to employ an undergraduate from the electronic engineering or computer science departments at a Welsh university for 12 months to work on a project specific to your business.
  • An opportunity to employ a student who as part of the project receives the formal training in skills the industry has told us it needs, leading to an Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) qualification.
  • An opportunity to work closely with Welsh universities to develop the talent our industry needs in Wales.

The ESTnet will work with you and your student(s) to ensure that your placement is a success for all concerned.

If you have current vacancies suitable for a 12 month placement, please send them to
