William Golden from Uckfield Community Technology College has been awarded a sought-after Arkwright Engineering Scholarship that identifies him as one of the country’s future leaders in engineering and related areas of design.

The Scholarships provide students with a £600 financial award to enhance their A level or Scottish Higher studies and a range of activities to enhance their understanding and experience of engineering. UCTC will also receive £400 for each Scholarship awarded to one of its students. They are respected by leading universities and industrial companies and supported by engineering employers and organisations such as Rolls-Royce, BAE Systems, National Grid, Balfour Beatty, Microsoft Research, Thales, The Royal Air Force and The Royal Navy.

Will had to successfully complete a rigorous selection process comprising a detailed application form, aptitude exam and an interview hosted at a top engineering university. The exam tested flair and originality in solving engineering design problems.
