The Digital Academy will offer second year students £3,000-a-year as well as up to 12-weeks paid summer placement throughout the duration of their studies within a Siemens business. Once they have completed their degree, they will be given the chance to join Siemens’ Graduate Scheme.


The programme is a partnership between Siemens, the University of Sheffield and Newcastle University and aims to offer undergraduates a practical, collaborative space to explore new technologies and put to use what they learn at university in the business world.


Six students from electrical, electronic engineering, and computer science departments have piloted the programme this summer.


Siemens digital industries managing director Brian Holliday said: "The Digital Academy is another ground-breaking example of how Siemens and our higher education partners are working together to encourage young people to pursue careers in engineering and technology.


"This programme gives undergraduates applied and up-to-date experience to bolster their academic learning. By strengthening links between business and our world-leading universities, we can inspire and nurture talent to support the UK’s leading role in the Fourth Industrial Revolution."


University of Sheffield’s vice-president and head of the Faculty of Engineering, Professor Mike Hounslow, added: "We are focused on bridging the Industry 4.0 skills gap by equipping students with the skills for the new digital economy. Our students will benefit immensely from working with such a pioneering and transformational technology company."
