How can industry, universities and colleges work together to upskill the workforce and increase the employability of students in science, engineering and maths? This conference will provide a great opportunity to find out how:
- a large multi-national hydrographic surveying employer, Fugro, has been working with Plymouth University and the Royal Navy to address the upskilling needs of the offshore surveying industry
- maths students at the University of Exeter have worked with employers to make the content of their degree course more focused on the skills they need in the workplace
- STEM students in the region carry out around 2,600 projects with employers per year which represents over 1 million person-hours and benefits both the business' bottom lines and the students' employability skills
and much more....
