Students and Graduates

Kick-start your career

If you are looking for an opportunity to expand your skill set and get hands-on experience in a vibrant and challenging environment, then a placement may be for you.

At CFMS, we offer a 12-month placement year based in Bristol. Our placement year allows you to gain industry experience of putting theoretical knowledge into real world practice.

Why take a placement year?

A placement year at CFMS exposes you to real-world science and engineering away from the textbooks and lectures of University life.  It gives you the chance to explore a variety of areas of engineering. A year working in industry is an opportunity to work with a talented team who can help you develop further and support you through your engineering journey.

A year in industry teaches beyond the realms of engineering. It will teach you real-life skills such as the importance of team-work, good communication skills and collaboration between colleagues.

You never know where your placement year will take you, you may find yourself falling into an area of engineering you were never exposed to before and pursuing it further!
