I'm just wondering if any MEng Imperial computing students would be kind enough to do me a favour - I'm interested in what kind of industrial placements Imperial offers to undergrad computing students. I've found an earlier thread in this forum with details on the placements for 2006 and 2007 but I am unable to post in there for some reason.
I'm hoping to be able to look at the placement opportunities Imperial has for 2008 and 2009 if possible. (I'm not even sure if this year's selection is up yet. ) The placement website is at (for your convenience):
but specifically, I would like to look at the following 2 links from that page:
Would greatly appreciate it if someone could PM or post the contents of those pages here.
Thank you so much in advance for your kind assistance!

For the Computing MEng course, the industrial placement is a compulsory part of the course and you have to find computer related work for 6 months. It is your responsibility to make sure you find one, college will not do this for you. DoC may help you to improve your CV, give you interview practice and other helpful advice, but they will not be actively finding you a job.
This makes the content of the links not very important, since where you end up going just depends on where you want to apply to. To give you an idea, here are some destinations:
Factset Europe Ltd
Imperial College London
KBC Financial Products
NHS Hammersmith & Fulham
Pixel Addicts Ltd
Symbian Software Ltd
Vodafone Group R&D
You can apply to any company on and not on this list, as long as the work you're doing is somehow related to your computing degree.

Ahh, I didn't realize that. Thanks a lot, I stand corrected then.

It helps if you get a summer internship in your 2nd year too. Looks good on your CV.
Looking at the link you posted, Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, UBS and Deutsche Bank dominate every list, with it seems at least 70% going to one of those four.
