The Engineering Leadership Awards scheme is a sponsored program that enables many young engineers at university to take engineering and management to a higher level. Benefits to the students include:

  • Receiving £500 cash each year for three years to cover educational expenses;
  • Gaining up to £6,000 over three years for activities on their own bespoke personal development plan;
  • Attending seminars and workshops which provide management training and career development advice, held at the University of Cambridge;
  • Having access to their own personal mentor, who is a Sainsbury Management Fellow;
  • Gaining high quality work experience and career opportunities.

Three of the engineering leadership award holders for this year are members of the current Cambridge University Engineering Society (CUES) committee.
