The University is working in partnership with Enginuity and RWE Sofia Offshore Wind Farm to attract more women to study an engineering-related degree, with a view to create a more diverse talent pipeline for current and future industries in the Tees Valley.

The scholarships hope to meet the demand for skills stimulated by the new government and corporate investment in the region. 

The launch of the scholarships coincides with National Women in Engineering Day on Sunday 23 June, which recognises the amazing women that contribute to the engineering trade.
