Brunel?s Women in Engineering programme is designed, with industry, to support women engineers to become future leaders in engineering. The programme runs in parallel to your chosen MSc course, providing additional contact with industry through mentoring and site visits, and professional development training designed specifically for female postgraduate students.?In return you will become ambassadors for the engineering profession and this programme.
For 2014-15, we are offering 40 scholarships for UK/EU female students, covering both tuition fees for qualifying full-time MSc courses and a living allowance of ?15,000. The following is one of the qualifying courses:
Advanced Manufacturing Systems MSc
The Advanced Manufacturing Systems (AMS) course is designed to address the challenges of modern Manufacturing and Enterprise Systems. It covers a breadth of subjects that enable candidates to appreciate and deal with complexities of modern industrial environments.?
The aims of this course are
- To demonstrate how the technological and human resources of manufacturing are organised to make products in the most competitive way.
- To provide a thorough knowledge of the potential and limitations of new manufacturing technologies.
- To illustrate the essential role of the human resource and its effective integration into the manufacturing system.
- To give the sound theoretical underpinning necessary to exploit the potential of modern manufacturing systems.
- To fit management and strategic theories into the realities of modern manufacturing by demonstrating a positive applications approach.
- To encourage work on real industrial problems, giving confidence in the ideas underlying manufacturing and the practicalities of implementing these ideas.?
Your application for the scholarship will be automatic; eligibility will be checked from the details in your online application for the MSc course. Your personal statement should explain your experience to date, ambitions for the future, and commitment to engineering.?For further information on this Scholarship, and its terms and conditions please visit: www.brunel.ac.uk/women-in-engineering or contact Petra Gratton at [email protected]?

Our bid proposed to address the gender imbalance of our engineering post graduate taught degrees through the delivery of the ?Women in Engineering Programme? and the funding of scholarships.
Under Equality and Diversity legislation we believe we can take Positive Action to offer scholarships to female students and design specific interventions that will support females on post graduate taught engineering degrees. These programmes will also support females to consider continuing their studies at a post graduate research level.
