E3 Academy Scholarships

The E3 Academy Scholarships support students studying IET-accredited courses in Electrical Energy Engineering at three partner Universities in the UK. Electrical Energy Engineering involves the generation of electrical energy, often using alternative energy sources, its control, using power electronic converters to change voltage and frequency, and its application in industry, transport and the home.

The E3 Academy supports the development of young people interested in challenging and well-paid careers in leading UK engineering companies. E3 scholars also have access to work placements, summer schools and company mentoring, leading to employment after graduation.

The E3 Academy’s participating companies are looking to sponsor good motivated students who are about to begin a course, or are in the early years of a course, at the Universities of Nottingham, Newcastle or Bristol. Candidates must be studying for either an MEng or BEng Degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, or a Degree with a significant Electrical component.

E3 Academy scholars are expected to be ambassadors for the Academy, the company providing sponsorship and the university at which they are studying. They must also maintain a high level of academic progress at university, and assist in the promotion and marketing of the Academy. E3 Academy scholars can achieve this by attending seminars and meetings organised by the Academy. They are also expected to participate in the vacation training organised by the sponsoring company.

The E3 Academy supports students studying IET-accredited courses in Electrical Energy Engineering at the following Universities:

  • Newcastle University
  • University of Nottingham
  • University of Bristol

Furthermore, each E3 Academy Scholar is supported by one of the participating companies.

The closing date for initial applications is the end of April, for students starting their University studies in September each year.
