Electronics undergraduates now have the opportunity to work with contract electronics manufacturer Jaltek via the UK Electronics Skills Foundation (UKESF) Scholarship Scheme.
The Scheme provides electronics undergraduates from UKESF Partner Universities with the opportunity to work with a member company, who will provide sponsorship and professional support to one or more successful scholars.
Jaltek’s MD, Steve Pittom, said, "We’re thrilled to be involved with UKESF, this is a great opportunity for us to connect with tomorrow’s engineers and promote a career in what is an exciting, creative and highly rewarding industry. Our customers work in cutting edge, high technology environments and successful applicants will have the opportunity to experience the whole process right from conceptual design, through manufacturing and test, to final product realisation.”
Steve continued, “Engineering touches every part of our lives, with the importance of technology being highlighted more now than ever before as the industry globally innovated to help during the COVID-19 pandemic and continue to do so. People have realised the importance of electronics not only in saving lives but also in helping us to work from home, stay connected with loved ones, and pay for things without cash actually changing hands, and these are just a few. This next generation of innovators will play a key role in helping to shape the technological future of the world we live in.”
Commenting on Jaltek joining the scheme, CEO of UKESF, Stewart Edmondson said, “I am very pleased to welcome Jaltek as a UKESF partner. They are a really progressive company, who will provide students with valuable work experience in the Electronics design and manufacturing sector. Through our Scholarship Scheme, I’m sure that we will be able to connect them to some very capable undergraduates.”
The UKESF now has 24 partner universities, from right across the UK. With these partners, they continue to attract high-quality students to the Scholarship Scheme. Last year they received over 230 applications from undergraduates, with an encouraging increase in the percentage of female students applying.
