Zutari invites qualifying students to apply for Bursary Programme 2023 academic year.
Bursaries will be awarded for BSc or BEng undergraduate degree studies, in the following fields:
- Chemical Engineering
- Civil Engineering
- Electrical Engineering
- Electronic Engineering
- Industrial Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering
- Mechatronics Engineering
- and other related disciplines
Academic performance will be reviewed in June and in November each year, after receiving students exam results.
Students will then continue to receive funding if their results are satisfactory, however students who do not satisfy the minimum requirements will have their funding placed on hold, until results improve.
Once students have graduated, they are required to enter in to the Zutari graduate recruitment process, whereby they will be placed in a graduate role – graduates will complete one year of work for each year of bursary funding received.
Shortlisted candidates will be contacted and invited to panel interviews. Candidates will then be selected based on 4 main criteria: academic performance, field of study, financial need and interview score.
