Student Opportunities

The Industrial Liaison Office (ILO) provides a range of opportunities for our engineering and computer science students to engage with industry.

Through our internship, mentoring and Year in Industry schemes, we support our students to:

• Explore careers in engineering and computer science
• Receive career and study advice from industrial mentors
• Apply knowledge and develop skills in the workplace


We work with companies and the Faculty to create a range of summer internships, exclusive for engineering and computer science students at the University of Bristol.


We allocate every first-year undergraduate student an industrial mentor, supporting our students to develop into future engineers and computer scientists.

Year in Industry

We work with companies to offer a range of Year in Industry placements, some of them exclusive to engineering students at the University of Bristol.

These resources will be moved to a dedicated Blackboard site, Engineering Employability, by October 2019. If you can't find it in 'My Organisations' on the Blackboard homepage please get in touch

It's been invaluable to have access to a professional in the industry to answer any questions that we have – big or small.
