Event Details

The 2016 Industrial Engagement Event (IEE) is an internal event which aims to connect PhD students and industry leaders with like interests to discover potential areas of collaboration, particularly via internships and industry projects. This year, we will be co-hosting the IEE with the CDT in High Performance Embedded & Distributed Systems (CDT in HiPEDS), from Imperial College London.

The first part of the day will focus on student and industrial presentations, so as to inform both groups on each other’s work/research areas. A small number of students will concentrate their presentations on their internship experiences with industry partners. This shall be followed by an interactive student poster session, when industry partners can further explore students’ current research.

After lunch, the day’s event will include a networking session, which will be structured to allow for industry representatives to have one-to-one sessions with students and discuss in more detail the opportunities for internships and projects.

Members of the CDT in PPar’s Industrial Advisory Board will break for a feedback meeting, which all industry representatives are welcome to attend.
