Bristol students win national engineering scholarships

9 March 2018

Three Engineering Design students from the University of Bristol have received awards from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).

Nathan Wooster and Phoebe Andrew each won a Diamond Jubilee Scholarship; James Clark received an Engineering Horizons Bursary.

These were among 150 awards (75 scholarships and 75 bursaries) given by IET to students who started a Masters or an undergraduate degree in engineering at a UK university in 2017. Each receives at least £1,000 per academic year, plus mentoring and work experience placements through the IET’s extensive networks.

Nathan Wooster said: ‘The IET Diamond Jubilee Scholarship will provide me with unique opportunities throughout my degree as well as financial support. I look forward to progressing further towards an engineering career.’

James Clark said: ‘It was an honour to receive the Horizons Bursary and I am incredibly grateful for the helping hand. The award will be very useful in providing learning materials and I look forward to being able to show my appreciation by assisting with STEM outreach and furthering the IET’s goals of inspiring the next generation of engineers.’
