In addition to the MSc scholarship, beX participants will be offered the opportunity to complete a paid employability project on Built Environment topic during their studies. The project brief is set by an industry partner and delivered under expert academic supervision and access to university research facilities and resources. Participants also receive entrepreneurship training specifically designed to develop their skills working in multidisciplinary teams.
On completion of the employability project, participants will pitch to a forward thinking professional panel of Architect, Engineering and Construction (AEC) organisations. The pitch will provide an opportunity to demonstrate positive outcomes and highlight the commercial value of the project for both the industry partner and participant.
