Heriot Watt university

Heriot-Watt University – which produces more graduates a year in physical sciences and engineering than any other Scottish university – is now offering more than 100 student bursaries to its Energy Academy 2014 programme.

The pan-university Energy Academy covers the full spectrum of energy skills, ranging from solar energy and energy-focused materials, sustainable building, petroleum engineering and smart grids, through to energy economics, policy and logistics.

This year, Heriot-Watt is providing 120 bursaries worth £3,000 each to final-year or post-graduate students in Electrical, Mechanical, Chemical and Civil Engineering.

A university spokesman said: “The Heriot-Watt Energy Academy provides a ready-made pool of energetic and enthusiastic graduates and can help bridge the gap between academics and industry through input into the education process of future professionals and innovators.”
