Engineering students A new award designed to help develop high-level technical skills in the next generation of engineers has been launched by global industry leaders Siemens in partnership with the University of Lincoln, UK.

The Siemens Postgraduate Engineering Award will cover the full tuition fee amount for the successful student to complete the one year taught Master’s degree in either Mechanical Engineering, Engineering Management, or the one year MSc by Research Engineering at the University of Lincoln.  

The scholarship is open to Home, EU or International students who hold an offer to study one of these postgraduate programmes in the University’s School of Engineering in September 2018.

The award is the latest offering from Siemens, who already provide a generous range of scholarship and bursaries for undergraduate Engineering students at Lincoln. In addition to the monetary value of the award, the award also offers the possibility of a graduate position with the Siemens following the successful completion of the programme.

The University is well-known for its pioneering approach to working with employers, something which has been acknowledged through a series of national awards and accolades including a Lord Stafford Award and a Times Higher Education Award, and this scholarship is the latest development in its close partnership with Siemens.

Working in collaboration with the industry company, the institution established the first dedicated new engineering school to be created in the UK for more than two decades in 2009, investing heavily in the recently opened £28m Isaac Newton Building which provides state-of-the-art facilities for the School.

The University is also one of only a handful of top UK universities to hold Siemens Global Principal Partner status, recognising the University's wide-ranging research collaborations and success in developing graduate talent with Siemens.

Professor Mary Stuart, Vice Chancellor at the University of Lincoln, said: “At Lincoln we are proud of our innovative industry-engaged approach to learning, delivering the skills industry needs while ensuring our students benefit from the connections we make.

“Our special partnership with Siemens is recognised nationally as a blueprint for how academia and industry can work together to drive education, innovation and economic growth, and scholarships like this help to enhance the higher education experience. We are grateful to Siemens for its continued support in helping us to raise the bar for some of the best emerging engineering talent.”

Applications for the award should be submitted by Monday 20th August.
