In years 3 and 4, our students work together in an “SLT Hub”.
This is a student-led SLT consultancy-style service to local and UK companies and other organisations. Short projects will be planned and delivered by small student teams formed to bring together the necessary expertise.
This activity is modelled on a unique feature of our host department: our masters students run their own software company, Genesys, which accepts real contracts for real clients.
Hub projects are relatively small in size, and cover specific advice and small scale feasibility study work in the domain of speech and language technologies. Our students take different roles engaging with partners and the wider SLT industry in the UK and overseas. All work is conducted in teams and students are involved in the delivery of work, in the engagement with industry and in the planning and presentation work.
