In the School of Computing, we are always open to engagement with enterprises. In particular, we are interested in partnerships with industry through state funded commercialisation grants, innovation partnerships and innovation vouchers, industry sponsored PhD programmes, student placements and industry sponsored post-doctoral fellowships.
