The Department of Informatics is seeking to embed Enterprise & Engagement (E&E) in education and has recently joined the Industry Exchange Network, a network of 12 UK Universities that run E&E education activities at scale. The Department has designed a framework for Knowledge Exchange Projects (KEP), which are individual or group student projects where an external stakeholder proposes the topic and provide advice alongside an academic supervisor.
In 2022/23 we launched KEP for undergraduate group projects and have partnered with Amazon Web Services to source real world challenges for ~50 Year 4 Computer Science students to work on as part of their final year project. Students appreciate working on real world problems and building relationships with potential employers.
We are now working to expand this offering into 2023/2024 for undergraduate final year individual projects. To be able to do this we need to onboard external stakeholders to then match the projects with our students and academic supervisors.
We aim to allocate around 15 – 20 KEPs in 2023/2024 and roll out the programme to reach ~150 students in subsequent years.
The Student Industry Projects Officer will support this activity, following up leads with potential partners, onboarding external stakeholders and acting as the main contact to maintain these relationships. They will support the contractual and organisational aspects of the partnerships and the organisation of the student projects.
