Award Description

The Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) is offering a number of Postgraduate Masters Scholarships to exceptional graduates with an IMechE accredited BEng(Hons) degree to allow them to undertake an IMechE accredited Masters degree for the purpose of obtaining the academic requirements for professional registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng).

Value of Award

  • Full time - up to £6,500.
  • Part time - pro rata.

It is intended that study should be on a one-year, full-time programme, however, if a suitable part-time, two-year programme is proposed, then the award may be divided equally between each year.

For a part-time programme, renewal of the award after the first year is conditional on satisfactory progress being made.
