As part of our commitment to supporting the future engineering workforce, E+I Engineering intend to provide a bursary fund for students interested in pursuing a third level course in Electrical Engineering.
A key issue facing the engineering industry in Ireland is the skill gap. The lack in uptake of engineering subjects at third level is resulting in a shortage of engineering graduates entering the job market. Without a steady stream of newly qualified workers, the industry is set to experience difficulty in fulfilling demand in the future. To help combat the skill shortage and attract more new talent to the industry, E+I Engineering are offering;
An award of £2,500 (€3000) each academic year to support up to 6 students in the 2019 enrolment to University.
The bursary will also include an Internship Programme where students can work in the Company during the summer or where work experience is required throughout the duration of their course.
Speaking about the fund, Gareth King, HR Manager at E+I Engineering said “Currently in its 3rd year, E+I Engineering’s bursary fund has supported 8 students through their degree studies to date, not only providing financial support but importantly nurturing these students through paid work experience and training, providing them with a platform into a prosperous and long term career within Engineering . As a company we are passionate about the promotion of STEM related career paths within E+I Engineering, via this 4-year programme and are delighted to be in the position to offer such an invaluable opportunity again in 2019, to local North West based Engineers of the future.”
