PMG iMayflower Virtual Internship Scheme 2021-2022
Information for Businesses
Our PMG iMayflower Virtual Internship Scheme will see current students and recent graduates from the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Business working on short term projects, to explore virtual manufacturing, 3D printing and other manufacturing technological trends on behalf of a PMG member business.
Interns working on projects will be paid at a standard rate of £13/hour, up to a maximum of 38 hours per project (£494), which will be funded and supported by iMayflower.
Case Study: Dan’s Engineering Ltd
Bridgwater based Dan’s Engineering Ltd recently collaborated with a 3D Design undergraduate who undertook a small scale research project evaluating the viability of replacing traditional measurement methods with 3D laser scanning. The resulting report supported the team in their assessment of the potential for technology, providing information on everything from the hardware and software required; processing power and file sizes; skills and training; and costs.
The application process
Businesses and organisations wishing to access support through this scheme are required to provide a brief project proposal for the internship, providing an overview of the research project, details of the anticipated time commitment and the type of skills they are looking for from the student.
A maximum of 10 individual projects can be supported for PMB member businesses. Funding will be awarded on a first come, first served basis and will be withdrawn when the maximum allocation has been reached.
Applications will be accepted from Monday 18th October 2021, with projects due to commence in December 2021. All projects must be completed by 25th February 2022, or later by prior arrangement.
