Recruiting the right graduate to deliver a project is key, and our university works hard to find the right candidate for each role that matches the particular needs of the business.
We recruit the brightest and best graduates to our projects. A KTP is an attractive prospect to a graduate as it offers them a competitive salary and a structured programme of ongoing development and training (funded through the KTP scheme). Our University also offers them the opportunity to apply for a fully-funded research degree with fees waived.
On completion of the project I started a new, permanent role at the company. Definitely my KTP project was a huge leap in my career.Dr Ruben Escribano, Mechanical Engineer, Collett & Sons Ltd
More than 50 per cent of our KTP graduates are offered – and accept - a permanent role with the company after completion of the project.
The KTP has given me wide exposure to industry from concept development through to product launch in a worldwide market.Dr Kalpana Durga, New Product Development Manager, Principle Healthcare
