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:
Water Engineering MSc
The Water Engineering course will provide graduates with an advanced knowledge and skills base, with particular strengths in aspects of water engineering.
The aims of this course are:
- To demonstrate the links between theory and practice by including input from our industrial partners and through site visits.
- Generic modules in financial and project management will underpin specialist modules focusing on Water Engineering topics.
- Students? skills in gathering and understanding complex information from a variety of sources (including engineering, scientific and socio-economic information) will be developed in an advanced research methods module.
- Issues relating to risk and health and safety will be introduced in the research methods module and built on in the more specialist modules.
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.
