Funding aims to inspire next generation of engineers
The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) is awarding £200,000 in scholarships and prizes to more than 120 aspiring engineers.
The winners will receive their scholarships, ranging in value from £1,000 to £3,000 per annum, at the annual IET Ambition and Achievement Awards ceremony later today.
Nigel Fine, the IET's chief executive, commented: "After an incredible year that saw the UK's engineering ability showcased to the world, we are proud to acknowledge the next generation of engineers and technicians.
"The Ambition Awards celebrate the incredible wealth of talent this country has to offer, particularly the achievements of talented young students who I believe will go on to become great ambassadors for UK engineering."
