These companies come from across the whole of the Electronics sector and include some really exciting scale-ups. They are offering students really great opportunities to gain invaluable work experience.”

Each company will interview a number of relevant applicants and go on to provide sponsorship and professional support to one or more successful scholars. Employers interested in joining the scheme can find out more here.
