Abstract

Producing the graduates that industry wants is more complicated than simply cramming them full of the right knowledge; they must also develop the confidence and understanding to serve the needs of their future employers. This can only be gained from experience in a real manufacturing environment. The authors describe the pioneering approach to industrial experience given to postgraduates at Cranfield University.
