Engineering Students selected for Johnston and Johnson's WiSTEM2D Programme
Johnson & Johnson’s WiSTEM2D programme champions and promotes women in STEM careers. For the 2020-21 UCC programme, 11 undergraduate students have been selected from 98 applications to receive a bursary of €3000, as well as early career development opportunities including a comprehensive mentoring programme and networking with J&J. We would like to say a very well done to Rose Delaney, a 2nd year student of Electrical and Electronic Engineering who is one of the bursary recipients.
We are also very proud to have two more 2nd year students amongst the runners up.
Congratulations to Sarah Herbert of Energy Engineering and Caoimhe Lyons, Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
All the students were selected for the programme following a rigorous application process. They will shortly be assigned a J&J female role model who will support and mentor them as well as affording them the opportunity to visit Johnson and Johnson sites across the country and develop their STEM networks in the industry.
