UWE Bristol and Hewlett Packard
We share our Frenchay Campus with the European headquarters of Hewlett-Packard (HP). As a result, our relationship with HP has been ongoing for many years, through course sponsorship, guest lectures, research collaboration, work placements and graduate recruitment.
Enhancing the student experience
This has now deepened to a unique strategic Partnership Agreement, underscored by a £10million IT infrastructure investment by UWE, aimed at further enhancing our students’ experience.
Companies including Microsoft, Cisco, Schneider and others within HP’s supply chain are providing their support through work placements for students, professional training, systems support and more.
Guaranteed work placements
The new Enterprise Computing degree has been developed in partnership with HP and these companies, with at least 20 guaranteed work placements per year from HP alone. See our HP scholarship student profile.
This strategic relationship is one of only five across the globe. It gives the Department access to further potential partnerships with other regional offices of HP and their world-wide supply chains.
The UWE+HP partnership is core to our ambition to deliver leading-edge IT knowledge alongside exceptional student experience throughout the world.
