Coventry University is launching a range of new degree apprenticeships aimed at students keen to gain top-level academic and practical experience to enhance their chances of securing the best jobs in the sector.
The degree apprenticeships are designed to offer an effective approach to achieving high level skills and knowledge fit for current and future engineering requirements. The schemes aim to prepare graduates to work at the forefront of future development in design or manufacturing.
Paul Green, Associate Professor at Coventry University, said, “The degree apprenticeship scheme is a great initiative that can offer huge benefits all round. Industry has the opportunity to upskill staff via a structured programme that can provide competitive advantage and future growth, while apprentices can gain access to expertise that helps ensure their skills stay relevant and up-to-date.”
The programmes are tailored to enable access at various levels and can be completed in either 48 months, 32 months or 16 months dependent on entry point. The apprenticeships offer the opportunity to develop skills capability in research, analysis, design, computer aided engineering, project planning, management and either advanced manufacturing or mechatronics.
The new product design and manufacturing programmes are delivered by Coventry University staff and hosted between the University and The MIRA Technology Institute. Apprentices have access to world-class facilities and excellent accommodation. The programmes have attracted support from a wide range of leading automotive, engineering and manufacturing companies.
