Abstract

This paper presents the ‘With Industrial Experience’ programme offered as an option to undergraduate students in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Manchester, usually between their second and third year of study. Our focus is on the students' perceptions of the programme drawing on eight interviews with students who had already completed the course. By highlighting students' view of the benefits and also limitations of the programme we hope to inform our immediate plans for improvement of the course as well as the practice of others with similar programmes, globally.
