University of Derby students win national bursaryThree students from the University of Derby have received Engineering Horizons bursaries from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) (

Michael Cane and Kyran Hill, who are studying electrical and electronic engineering at the university, and Adam
Carpenter, who is studying mechanical engineering, are among just 75 students to receive bursaries this year.

Established in 2016, the scheme helps students — entering an apprenticeship or an engineering degree programme — who have qualifications such as a BTEC, HND, Access to Higher Education Diploma or other vocational qualification, as well as those in challenging circumstances.

Warren Manning, the university’s dean for engineering and technology, said: “We are delighted that three of our students have been awarded Engineering Horizons bursaries.

“This highly competitive award is given to degree students who are passionate about engineering, so to be chosen demonstrates how committed and enthusiastic our students are.”

IET president Nick Winser said: “We’re thrilled to have been able to support talented apprentices and undergraduate students who have overcome obstacles and personal challenges to pursue an engineering education and career.

“We hope that the scheme will continue to grow and that we will build the number of our bursary winners.”
