The nature of the placement work can vary substantially, though the majority of the students will find placements where they will work on software engineering and development projects. Students may be involved with projects analysing, designing, implementing and/or evaluating solutions for a problem which the placement provider or one of its clients faces. However, other placements such as in technical support and job roles are also feasible. It is hoped that the students will participate as members of an industrial team, as opposed to working in relative isolation. The placement should require the use of skills and knowledge acquired during the first three years of training, which are shown in the degree information page and which they will apply in a real industrial setting.
