Science without Borders students awarded internships at leading aerospace company

Science without Borders students have been awarded four of only eight internships available at one of the world’s leading aerospace companies.

The students, Vinicio Ramalho, Raphael Ottoni de Souza, Sidney Kolás and André Osório, have each successfully secured a placement with the fifth largest manufacturer of executive jets in the world, Embraer.

Science without Borders is a competitive programme which offers students in Brazil the opportunity to study at universities worldwide. The programme is fully funded by the Brazilian government to enable individuals from all income backgrounds to broaden their opportunities through international study.

Loughborough is one of the top-20 universities in the UK to accept applicants through the programme, having received more than 200 students over the past four years.

The four members of this year’s intake are set to leave the University in June to start their internship at Embraer, based in Portugal.
