British Institute Invests in UK Engineering

Two gifted students sponsored by the British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing

Online PR News – 20-November-2013 – Northampton, UK – The British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT) is investing in the future of UK engineering by sponsoring prestigious scholarships awarded to two gifted 16-year-olds.

Oren Patel-Champion from Oakham School, Rutland, and Jamie Brown from Bedford Modern College were presented with Arkwright engineering scholarships at a London awards ceremony earlier this month. The pair were chosen following a rigorous selection process, comprising an assessed application form with teacher’s reference, a two-hour aptitude exam and a university-based interview.

Cameron Sinclair, CEO of BINDT, said: “Congratulations to Oren Patel-Champion and Jamie Brown on their fantastic achievements. We are delighted to help guide these promising students, who stand on the threshold of their engineering careers.

“In addition to the financial assistance already committed, we will put in place practical measures that are designed to enhance their studies. In this way, we aim not only to inform them about non-destructive testing but to inspire them to apply these principles in future years.”

Arkwright engineering scholarships are supported by an expanding group of companies, universities, professional institutions, trade associations, the armed services, charitable trusts and personal donors. They are highly regarded by universities and industry and help to create a pipeline of top talent into the engineering profession.
