We have been delighted to offer a number of placement to students over the past few years. Here is what two placement students had to say about their time at FINBOURNE in 2020/21:  


“During my internship with FINBOURNE I had the opportunity of gaining real insight into the world of professional engineering, writing production code used by real customers. Helped by an open and collaborative company culture I was given all the support I needed to become a part of the team and start adding value from day-one. I learned a lot, and had a great time doing it.” (Martin Winchester, 2020).  


“FINBOURNE has taught me about the use of prominent technologies to optimise the performance and robustness of the operations carried out at the company. I’ve developed some key soft skills and have thoroughly enjoyed my time as a dependent team member. I was also impressed by the infrastructure and use of CI/CD.” (David Urdaibay, 2021).
