In summer 2017, WMG has 20 places available for Midlands manufacturers to host a talented student or graduate to work on a strategic project in their business.
A part of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, WMG’s SME group at the University of Warwick has been delivering this internship scheme since 2010, with over 120 business so far benefiting from a range of impactful outcome.
The scheme encourages students studying STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects to consider careers in the manufacturing supply chain. Coupled with this, it supports SME manufacturers to increase productivity by embedding new technologies and processes into their business for minimal cost (£2000 per 8 week project).
Our internship programme acts as a valuable bridge between our students' academic studies and a future career in the manufacturing industry. Our small manufacturers are able to get access to fresh new thinking, backed up by WMG Centre HVM Catapult expertise. This is crucial if we want to tackle the well documented UK skills gap
