From space to semiconductors, nerve guides to Network Rail

The 2014 SELA cohort are preparing for their first summer placements – a key element in the SELA programme – which are due to start next month.
Several students have secured 8-10 week placements with major engineering firms. These include:
  • ARM, a leading designer and supplier of semiconductor technology
  • Alan Wood & Partners, civil and structural engineering consultants
  • Cambridge Consultants,  product development engineering and technology consultants
  • Network Rail
  • Caterva, which designs solar energy storage systems
Some of the cohort have decided to carry out their first placement in research. The projects they will be working on with the University’s Faculty of Engineering include:
  • Additive manufacturing (3D printing) of metallic materials for aerospace
  • Space engineering in the low earth orbit
  • Nuclear waste disposal
  • Implants to enable nerve repair
  • Self-healing composite materials
  • Battery technology, including 3D printing batteries
