We’re more than proud of our Student to Stemette ‘more-than-mentoring’ programme and everything our ‘Sherpees’ achieve. From winning Undergraduate of the Year Award for Innovation to becoming Arkwright Fellows. From observing industry on the programme to entering industry and coming back to support the programme.
