Welcoming our Interns

SME team 2017In July our SME team welcomed a group of interns as part of the 2017 Summer Internship Programme. They are working with local SMEs on a range of projects covering design and manufacture, tool development, electronics, materials testing and characterisation, and lean methodologies.

Over the past five years, we have delivered 110 internship projects and will deliver another 25 as part of this year’s programme. The interns work alongside our team of experts, giving them valuable work experience, and in turn our SMEs get to work with talented up and coming undergraduates, and access to the state-of-the-art research facilities at the University of Warwick.

If your company is interested in our Internships Programme contact Jen Manerova, Internships Officer, on 02476 523 776 or email: for more details.
