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.
