The students are taking part in lectures and workshops in fields including renewable energy and waste management as well as visiting the Falkirk Wheel, the Kelpies and Whitelee Wind Farm and touring Scotland’s cultural highlights.

Martin Cullen, the School’s Associate Dean International, said: “The School is delighted to once again welcome international students to its Scottish Engineering Summer Experience. The students are from a mixed set of programmes but they are all attracted by the opportunity to learn more about subjects such as renewable energy.

“The students will be given a taste of the innovative programmes we offer at GCU, as well as take part in a host of cultural activities and visits to some of Scotland’s fascinating engineering projects. We believe such an event will help motivate students, and their parents, to enrol in GCU taught postgraduate programmes in the future.”

The participating institutions between June 20 and July 1 are Chitkara University; College of Engineering & Technology, iiLM; PSG College of Technology; and R.V. College of Engineering.

Over the next couple of months, the School of Engineering and Built Environment will also welcome students from China (July 25-August 5) and host a Forensic Science and Criminal Justice in Scotland programme (July 15-August 5).
