Are you a business with an idea for a student Placement Project?

Working with MBN Academy, we will find over 130 MSc Data Science & Engineering students a 8-12 week placement in the summer. The student Placement Programme is a fantastic opportunity for them to gain hands-on experience and apply their academic skills to real life challenges. All students are profiled and individually matched to host company projects in Scotland.

Do you have a suitable project?

We are looking for companies with an idea for a project. This is a great opportunity for you to get access to a data scientist to tackle a real issue in your company.

Students will need to have access to the necessary data at the start of the project. Companies are not charged for this service, but are expect to pay their select student at least the minimum living wage (£7.20 as of 2019) per hour.
