What is the Digital Academy?The Digital Academy is a brand new sponsorship scheme and summer programme from Siemens. We’re excited to be launching the scheme in partnership with Sheffield and Newcastle Universities. The Academy has been created to prepare high-potential undergraduates to thrive in a future of industrial digitalisation. Just as digital technologies are transforming our day-to-day lives, they are also driving a revolution in business and industry.

This is a specialist field that will offer almost limitless possibilities for your future career.
