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:
Building Services Engineering MSc
The Building Services Engineering course responds to the worldwide demand for building services engineers who have a sound knowledge of engineering principles and the ability to apply this knowledge within the building services industry.?
The aims of this course are:
Building services engineering is an interdisciplinary profession. It involves the specification, design, installation and management of all the engineering services associated with the built environment. With the growing complexity of engineering services in modern buildings and the significance of energy conservation and emissions control, the role of the building services engineer is becoming increasingly important. In addition, the need to provide an internal environment that balances the comfort needs of the occupants with the functional requirements of the building calls for engineers with a wide range of knowledge and skills.
The aim of the programme is to respond to the worldwide demand for building services engineers who have a sound knowledge of engineering principles and the ability to apply this knowledge to the complex situations prevailing within the building services industry.
The Building Services Engineering course is of particular relevance to engineers who want to develop technical understanding and expertise across the multi-disciplines of Building Services Engineering.?
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.
