Student-led Projects & Industry Partnership
Involvement in an independent project is a rewarding way for students to make friends, learn about teamwork and experience a practical perspective on technology. A number of student societies focussed on such projects flourish at Cambridge. To further support these societies the Department of Engineering has created an umbrella organisation: the Student-led Projects & Industry Partnership (SPIP).
SPIP makes it easy for industry to learn about the projects and build links with the students involved. Industrial sponsors pay an annual subscription and are invited to regular forums. At each forum the student groups present the latest progress on their projects. The subscription money is allocated to the projects based on these presentations and used to enhance specific facilities that the projects require in the Department.
