Could your business offer a summer PEMD industry placement to one of 50 interested students?

The Driving the Electric Revolution Undergraduate Award is a collaboration between UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and the UKESF. The Award allows companies working on Power Electronics, Machines and Drives (PEMD) technology to connect with the most capable students from the UKs leading universities in a low-cost, low-risk way.

In the current climate, making connections with the next generation of Electronics graduates is a real challenge for employers. For ten years, the UKESF has been helping companies to connect with the most capable students from the UKs leading universities via our prestigious Scholarship Scheme.

The Driving the Electric Revolution Undergraduate Award is a collaboration between the UKESF and Innovate UK. It consists of a one-off work placement undertaken by the student during the summer following their first year (first or second year in Scotland), or foundation year studies. There is no long-term commitment beyond the summer work placement for employers, making this is a low-risk way of connecting with dedicated students interested in PEMD at the start of their studies.

This new Award is designed to promote interest in Power Electronics, Motors and Drives (PEMD) among engineering students and enable employers to connect with these students.
