The Engineering Education Scheme Wales (EESW) is a non-profit, educational charity which has been in existence since 1989.

We run numerous activities across Wales, providing students with the opportunity to gain practical experience working with industries, businesses and higher education. Activities include designing, making and racing a model F1 car, working with companies on real engineering problems, experiencing life as an engineering undergraduate at University and investigating, designing and modelling an innovative solution to an environmental problem.  

EESW aims to show industry just how talented the next wave of engineers and technicians are by bringing students and industry together for the benefit of all those involved and the future prosperity of the Welsh Economy.

Our Experience

EESW has managed and delivered two previous European Union funded projects, two Welsh Assembly funded Computer Aided Design (CAD) programmes and a HEFCW funded Reaching Wider initiative.  The organisation’s core activity involves managing up to 100 company links with schools.  EESW received funding from the Welsh Government through the Welsh European Funding Office from 2010-2015 to run the STEM Cymru project in the Convergence area of Wales.  EESW also received funding from the National Science Academy through the Welsh Government to run similar activities in the other areas of Wales.  

EESW has received further funding from the European Social Fund to continue to run STEMCymru 2 until June 2021.  

We are also grateful to our other sponsors and partners for their continued support.
