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:
Aerospace Engineering MSc
The Aerospace Engineering course has been developed to equip graduate engineers with the skills required of a highly demanding aerospace industry. Students will be actively involved in learning such topics as: aircraft design; advanced aerodynamics; space mechanics; spacecraft design; propulsion systems; and the role of flight simulation in aerospace.
The aims of this course are:
- To involve you in learning such topics as: aircraft design; advanced aerodynamics; space mechanics; spacecraft design; propulsion systems; and the role of flight simulation in aerospace.
- Practical and challenging individual and group aerospace project work. Such projects may include, for example: the design, fabrication and testing of a scale aircraft; computational fluid dynamics and structural analysis modelling of a critical aerospace component; flight performance evaluation using a flight simulator.
- To provide modules that cover topics in strategic management, enterprise, research and innovation, as well as exploring issues that are of special importance to the future of the aerospace industry, such as safety, security, and sustainability.?
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.?

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.
