Calling second and final year undergraduate students interested in technology and the Internet of Things!
The University of Sheffield is setting up a LoRaWAN network in the South Yorkshire region. Can you help develop some prototypes and code that showcases its potential to our campus community and local business? (All project work to be completed from home)
Create proven code and electronic design files for the basic network functionality, and bring your own project ideas that you’d like to work up.
Apply by 5pm on 20 May 2020.
What’s in it for you?
- Experience of cutting-edge tech and IoT developments
- Sign-posting to useful tech resources and webinars
- New connections in the business and tech communities
- Valuable careers skills, such as agile working and presentation giving
What support is available?
Regular online mentoring will be provided by a University Teacher supervisor, Dr Ramsay Taylor, alongside support from technical experts and industry contacts.
Who are you?
These internships are aimed at Computer Science and Engineering undergraduates, but if you are from another discipline and have some electronics and/or coding experience feel free to apply.
Students can apply individually or in collaborative pairs.
What activities will be involved?
Initially you will be set some activities to create code and electronic design files for the basic network functionality, and be involved in the subsequent testing. There will then be scope to continue in different ways, depending on your experience and interests, including;
- Build demonstrators for the University’s LoRaWAN network, e.g. build Arduino-based air quality or energy monitors
- Develop your own project, based on your own ideas
- Respond to projects set by regional businesses/organisations (these will be developed according to student interest areas where possible)
Payment and timeframe
10 week bursary at £208/week – from 22 June to 28 August
