Coventry University becomes the 28th leading UK university to work with the UK Electronics Skills Foundation (UKESF). Students* from the university will now have the opportunity to participate in the award-winning UKESF Scholarship Scheme.
Each year, prestigious electronics and technology employers offer UKESF Scholarships to undergraduates from the partner universities. Students awarded a scholarship are supported throughout their degree with opportunities for work placements to develop the skills they need to thrive in electronics, professional development, networking and outreach.
This new collaboration is great news for companies involved in the scholarship scheme as there will be even more talented and high-achieving students to connect with.
We know from our industry contacts that Coventry University produces exceptional engineering graduates. Their activity-led learning approach is excellent and provides their students with the opportunity to work on real-life problems and projects. They have first-rate facilities and a strong focus on outreach and schools engagement. Therefore, I’m delighted they are now a UKESF collaborator and we look forward to working together.
Stewart Edmondson, CEO, UKESF
The UKESF Scholarship Scheme, which has been recognised with a Princess Royal Training Award, is an exemplar of effective engagement between industry and universities.
Coventry University is thrilled to embark on this transformative collaboration with the UK Electronic Skills Foundation (UKESF). It represents a significant milestone in the university’s commitment to equipping our students with the technical, professional and personal skills and experiences necessary for success in the dynamic fields aligned with electrical and electronic engineering.
Our students will gain access to a wealth of opportunities, including bursaries, mentorship, and invaluable industry exposure. This collaboration will empower our engineering graduates to transition seamlessly into their graduate roles, armed with a diverse skill set.
