Free Masters degrees at UCL for female engineers
To encourage more women into the engineering sector, UCL has announced it is offering to waive fees on a range of Masters degrees, reports Eureka Magazine.
The engineering courses available include telecommunications, nanotechnology, biochemical engineering, and computer graphics, and the full time Masters bursaries cover tuition fees, maintenance costs, childcare and mentoring.
The website quotes Jane Butler, Vice Dean of UCL Engineering:
“The Graduate Support Scheme actively aims to support female graduates to attain their full potential in the engineering profession. We want to encourage many more women to apply as they are currently vastly under-represented in engineering.”
“The scheme is ideal for women returning to work or changing career. It offers mentoring by researchers and senior managers from technology companies to provide a fantastic boost to what can be a wonderful career for a woman to pursue.”
