Erasmus Mundus Minerals and Environmental Programme (EMMEP)
- is a 2 year M.Sc. program for students in Mining / Geotechnical Engineering, Mineral Processing, Recycling and related academic studies. There are three different specialisations; accommodating groups with 15 to 20 students each.
- Joining the EMMEP program is an excellent opportunity to study abroad with a group of international students.
- Applications for the 2010-2012 Program have now been closed. For the 2011-2013 programme, applications from Non-European Students can be submitted until November 1st, 2010. European Students can apply until April 1st, 2011.
- A new scholarship for international students has been established at Chalmers University of Technology. Ericsson AB will fully support the tuition fee for two international students at the master’s programme Communication Engineering for the autumn intake.
- From autumn 2011, students with citizenship in a country outside the European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland will be required to pay tuition fees for Swedish Higher Education. At Chalmers the fees are set to SEK 140 000/year for most educations, and to 190 000/year for educations within the field of architecture.
- The students that wish to study in Sweden can apply for several scholarships. At Chalmers, some of the scholarships are funded directly by Chalmers and others are provided by the Swedish Institute.
- This scholarship is available to outstanding international high school graduates (70% or above in year 12, or equivalent). The purpose of this scholarship is to attract students to study a Bachelor of Civil Engineering at La Trobe’s regional campus in Bendigo. It offers the opportunity for students to work in a region which currently faces a skill shortage of civil engineers.
- The scholarship, worth $20 000 over 4 years (or $5 000 per year, subject to satisfactory progress) will be offered to all students who meet the entry requirements and accept an offer to study the Bachelor of Civil Engineering at the Bendigo campus starting in Semester 1 (March) 2012.
- Students applying for this scholarship must meet the following English language requirements:
- IELTS – a minimum overall band score of 6.0 with no individual band less than 6.0, or
- TOEFL – a minimum score of 550 with a score of 5 or better in the test of written English, or
- TOEFL – a minimum score of 233 with a score of 5 in essay writing.
- How to apply – Applicants must complete a scholarship application form and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy of their offer letter.
Full scholarship is available to qualified talented students who meet its high admission standards which include appropriate TOEFL score, GRE and an excellent CGPA from a recognized university. A minimum CGPA of 3.0 (on a 4 point scale) or 2:1 in the British system, minimum TOEFL score of 577 (91 on the IBT) or academic IELTS (min 6.5), and a minimum GRE quantitative score of 700 are the basic requirements without which an applicant will most likely not be considered.
Students accepted into the Masdar Institute will be offered a full scholarship which includes the following:
- 100% tuition fee scholarship

- Reimbursement of TOEFL and GRE exam fees (upon registration at Masdar Institute and submission of original receipts)
- A competitive stipend per month (cost of living allowance).
- No bond or conditions to the scholarship upon graduation
The scholarship and benefits are subject to the student maintaining a minimum CGPA as determined by Masdar Institute of Science and Technology and satisfactory progress on their research.
- For undergraduate engineering degree-level courses of any engineering discipline including MEng and MSc courses.
- Available to outstanding engineers, who have excellent academic and practical skills and the qualities needed to succeed in industry, who are wishing to embark/or have already commenced on an engineering degree-level programme of any engineering discipline.
- Full-time – £4,500 p.a.(up to 4 years-excluding industrial years),Sandwich – The award will be paid on a pro rata basis. Part-time Study – The award will be paid on a reduced basis normally £3,000p.a.

How to find an Engineering Scholarship?
STEP # 1 – Understand the Engineering Scholarship Process
The first step is always to gather necessary information about the process that we are about to undertake. An engineering degree, in whichever part of the world, will always require that a candidate has, at least, completed secondary education, while the bachelor’s degree in engineering is the first level of education that is required in becoming a professional engineer. While the bachelor’s degree for engineering may take four to five years, it may take between one to four years of practice or training education before one is allowed to take the licensing examination. This may vary from country to country and school to school. Thus, it is important to take this into serious consideration for engineering education may take sometime before one can practice the degree in profession.
Now, if you are a secondary school graduate and wish to study engineering and are looking for a scholarship, read on to get insights on becoming a professional engineer in North America, Asia and Africa. The next pages will provide information on how to become an engineer, the period to complete a several types and degrees of engineering and the requirements on how to become one.
- How a chair, a building, a pen, a car is engineered is a factor that is affecting our lives on a daily basis. This article provides an overview to the scope encompassed by engineering as a profession. It also provides a brief comparison of the engineering education in different parts of the world.
- The article talks about the four main engineering disciplines: Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering. The article also provides information about the sub-disciplines of the four main branches of engineering.
- Unfortunately, not everyone is cut out to be an engineer. This article provides information on the required skill set to become an engineer and the possible challenges that may be encountered when taking up an engineering course.
STEP # 2 – Develop a List of Potential Engineering Schools
Now that you understand the process, you can now determine the type of school you are applying to and the level that you will have to apply for.
The next step is to develop a list of schools that you want to go to, and evaluate their requirements against your qualifications. It is also best to check if these schools admit International Students and if they have available scholarships. Your best option is to check with individual schools to see if they have any funding available. You would then apply for admission and scholarship concurrently. In most cases, scholarships are limited, therefore, it pays to apply in as many institutions as you can to get more chances of being granted with a scholarship. This way you may also increase your options and choices of which universities to go to for your engineering degree. It always pays to research everything before deciding.
