Which programmes have the industrial placement option?

To provide our postgraduate students with subject related work experience, the University of East London offers the option of an integrated industrial placement component within a number of Masters degree programmes. These 2-year MSc “with Industrial Placement” programmes are an extension of the existing 1-year MSc programmes within the School of Architecture, Computing and Engineering, these are:

MSc Civil Engineering
MSc Structural Engineering
MSc Construction Engineering Management
MSc Computer Science
MSc Information Security and Digital Forensics

How does it work?

The industrial placement component is for a duration of an academic year, ie, 30 weeks, which starts after you have successfully completed the taught modules, and before the dissertation stage. If you are an international student on a Tier 4 visa, your CAS issued will have a course duration of two calendar years, subject to your meeting the UKVI’s standard requirements. During the industrial placement period, you undertake an internship within a partner organisation and complete a 120 P-credit Industrial Placement Module. The criteria for progression to industrial placement is the successful completion of the MSc taught modules, i.e., with minimum of 50% pass mark.
