08/12 Influential and University of Kent School of Computing relationship

Posted on Wednesday 22nd August 2012 9:52

As Influential grows both the experienced side of the team and the flow of University placements, we are delighted to receive the following feedback from the University of Kent:

“We are delighted that the relationship between Influential Software and the University of Kent’s School of Computing has gone from strength to strength as the Maidstone-based software house continue to provide challenging and rewarding industrial placements to our year in industry students.

Students have been given the opportunity to apply their computing skills on business critical software development projects, as well as to learn about the operations of a progressive organisation with a diverse client base. We are extremely grateful for the support offered to our students during this pivotal year of personal development, and for the value placed on the students from day one.

Following the success of last year, five new interns have been recruited for 2012-13 including 4 students from the School’s recently introduced MSc with Industrial Placement course.

Two of last year’s interns have been offered full time graduate positions, making this arrangement extremely beneficial to all parties. We look forward to following the progress of our students, and to continuing to assist Influential in their placement needs.”
