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:
Embedded Systems (Multimedia Communications) MSc
The Embedded Systems (Multimedia Communications) MSc (masters) course, developed with the support of industry, integrates academic study and the realisation of embedded systems with emphasis and applications on multimedia communications and signal processing.?
The aims of this course are?
- Provide advanced knowledge and skills relevant to the theory and best practise of modern embedded systems technology (including FPGA and DSP) and its applications on multimedia signal processing and communications.
- Develop transferable skills in design, modelling, implementation, and evaluation of embedded systems for signal processing and multimedia communications that are contributable in either industry or academic employment.
- Develop the ability of analysing complex technical problems, and the versatility to apply embedded systems technology across a range of engineering areas with emphasis on multimedia signal processing and communications.
- Develop innovation, creativity and independent learning ability required for continuing professional development, further research, and for acquiring new skills at a high level.?
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 firstname.lastname@example.org?

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.
