Engineering Excellence Undergraduate Scholarship Programme

Financial support and an innovative learning experience for our students

We’ve recently established this programme to support undergraduate students at all stages of their degree. We work with our industry partners who provide financial support and an innovative learning experience for our students.

There are currently five industry partners involved, and discussions are ongoing with more. As the number of companies grows, more students will receive industry-sponsored scholarship support.

As well as financial support for the duration of the award, these scholarships also provide you with placement opportunities. This allows you to put theory into practice, thereby increasing employment opportunities as a result of an enhanced CV and prior hands-on industry experience.

The programme is also welcomed by our industry partners as it allows them access to a large number of high achieving students at all stages of their degree.
