The interaction of industry within undergraduate modules is generally fairly limited, with most interactions taking the form of case studies and guest lectures. This paper outlines how industry was integrated into student coursework on an undergraduate module within a Computer Science department. In doing so it provides insights into how such coursework could be designed, and explores many of the issues that need to be addressed in order to make such interactions a success.
