Three ways SELA helped me grow

Thomas Binu Thomas, Cohort 2019

SELA teaches engineering and computer science students the non-academic skills needed to enable a driven individual to strive in their workplace. But it is so much more than just a skill development opportunity! As Dr Gary Wood, Head of SELA, says: it is an individual journey that every single cohort member will experience differently throughout the two year period. If you were to listen to any exit interview, they would all be different! Here’s a small window into my own journey and what I have learnt so far during my first year at SELA.

Celebrating SELA’s Royal Academy of Engineers Scholarship Winners

SELA is proud to announce that members Sam Maxwell and Sam Rhodes have been chosen as winners of this year’s Engineering Leaders Scholarship from the Royal Academy of Engineering.

The RAEng has a long history of engineering excellence and part of this is identifying next generation leaders in the field. The Engineering Leaders Scholarship identifies these future leaders and supports their personal and professional development. The scholarship includes a £5,000 personal award over three years towards career development activities, as well as offering exciting opportunities to develop the winners’ potential, such as undertaking an accelerated personal development programme. All of which helps the winners bag that dream job post graduation!

The scholarship is open to all undergraduate students who have completed their first year in engineering or a related field, so competition for places is fierce. SELA would like to take this opportunity to extend a huge congratulations to both Sam Maxwell and Sam Rhodes for this phenomenal achievement.
