Two engineering students in Atlantic Technological University (ATU) have been awarded bursaries from Galway-based firm TE Connectivity based upon their outstanding academic achievement.
Roy Sheridan, a mechanical engineering student from Castlebar, living in Galway, and Qistina Binti Ab Halim, an energy engineering student from Renmore in Galway, are entering into their final year of studies within the ATU Galway-Mayo Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at the Galway campus.
A key element of the bursaries awarded is each student will have to complete a major project for TE connectivity who will assign them a professional mentor to help guide the project deliverables.
After picking up their bursaries, the students were given an insight into a typical engineer’s duties at a biomedical company and afterwards were given a tour of its state-of-the-art facilities.
Roy said he was honoured and delighted to be chosen for the bursary which is going to be hugely beneficial to him in his final year of my studies. "It will allow me to focus and be all that I can be academically and will alleviate the financial worry associated with third level study".
