Knowledge Transfer Partnerships with Exeter University

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships with Exeter University


If you want to apply your degree straight away and gain a professional qualification, then a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) could be just what you're looking for.


Each Knowledge Transfer Partnership is a three-way partnership between Centek, the University of Exeter and the graduate. Innovate UK provides oversight of the programme. You would be employed to carry out a specific piece of research for a period of between 12 and 36 months by the University of Exeter but would be seconded to Centek, spending most of your working time with us and becoming embedded within the organisation.

Each KTP project serves to meet a core strategic need of our business and to identify innovative solutions to help us grow. You will be expected to take ownership of the project and in return you will benefit from invaluable commercial experience.

Case Study:

Working in collaboration with the University of Exeter and using some of their high performance computers, we have developed specialist modelling software and a surface response modelling tool which will drastically reduce the number of test cycles, and the total cost and time taken to get new products to customers.
