    The majority of scholarships will be awarded to students studying electrical, electronic, power and mechatronics engineering, with some places for mechanical, civil and structural engineering students.

    Students studying dual / double degrees in electrical engineering are highly valued and will be viewed favourably.

    Engineering students from these faculties with a passion for building a career in the electricity industry are encouraged to apply, provided criteria 1, 2, 3 & 4 above are met.

    Important additional considerations:

    • Dual / double degrees are eligible. Integrated Bachelor and Master Degrees are also eligible.
