The scholarship gives up to £4,000 to a passionate student to help them complete an IET accredited undergraduate degree course. Marnie’s degree is a five year course as it includes a placement year and a master’s. This scholarship will help to reduce her financial stress so she can focus on her studies and she is looking forward to using the IET resources available to her to develop her as a student and an engineer.
Furthermore, Marnie will have access to IET workshops and events, as well as the opportunity to network with other scholars.
After taking part in a residential trip to Loughborough University, before becoming a student, Marnie discovered her interest in coding and found out that she could use electrical engineering to pursue her passion for sustainability.
Marnie added: “I am very proud to be receiving this scholarship and excited to continue my studies as an IET member. For prospective applicants, my advice would be to demonstrate that you have been active in finding out more about engineering and developing your personal interests in engineering.
“As an IET scholar, I hope to be an exemplary engineering student and a good role model for students and peers.”
