Siemens undergraduate sponsorhip programmeSiemens has launched a new undergraduate sponsorship programme to inspire and nurture the next generation of engineering talent (in partnership with the University of Sheffield and Newcastle University).

The Digital Academy will pay selected second-year students £3,000 a year and arrange up to 12 weeks of paid summer placements with a Siemens business during their studies.

The scheme aims to offer students a ‘collaborative space’ to explore Industry 4.0 technologies and put what they learn into real-world use.

Brian Holliday, Siemens Digital Industries managing director, said: “The Digital Academy is another ground-breaking example of how Siemens and our higher-education partners are working together to encourage young people to pursue careers in engineering and technology.

“This programme gives undergraduates applied and up-to-date experience to bolster their academic learning.

“By strengthening links between business and our world-leading universities, we can inspire and nurture talent to support the UK’s leading role in the fourth industrial revolution.”

Mike Hounslow, head of the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Sheffield, said: “We are focused on bridging the Industry 4.0 skills gap by equipping students with the skills for the new digital economy.

“Following a long-standing strategic partnership with Siemens, the University of Sheffield is delighted to be collaborating on the Digital Academy.”
