Industrial Sponsorship Programme “RESPECT”

RESPECT is an initiative for Civil Engineering undergraduate students and builds on our strong links with industry to provide a symbiotic relationship between training, education and employment.

Companies taking part in RESPECT each year look for motivated, enthusiastic engineers. They are all looking for talented engineers which is why they come to Birmingham! All will recruit for summer or industrial year placements and some look for long-term sponsorship and development during your time as a student.

This gives you flexibility to use the Department’s industrial contacts to your benefit: whether you want to look for the security of a commitment between you and your company, or whether you want to get as much variety of experience as you’re able.

If you’re lucky enough to be offered sponsorship, not only does it mean valuable paid work experience, it also means a bursary per subsequent year of study (the bursary is up to the company but if it is offered, it is usually in the region of £1,000-£1,500 pa). All companies taking part in RESPECT hope to offer a possible job upon graduation.

 

Whitworth Scholarship Awards
