Student short-term placements

Unfortunately for financial reasons we are unable to offer student placements in 2017.

In most years, CCFE has a limited number of scientific and engineering placements, particularly in the summer months. Placements usually last between six and ten weeks, giving time for those involved to complete a self-contained and individual task on which they are expected to write and present a report at the end of their stay. The work is always relevant to real-world problems encountered on site, is supervised and supported at every stage by scientists and engineers, and often covers a number of disciplines including theoretical and experimental physics, design and practical engineering.

Occasionally CCFE offers opportunities for students looking for a longer-term placement, either before university or in a sandwich year. These placements often involve a number of different projects and more in-depth training than would be possible over a summer.
