The Scholarship

The RBC Scholarship in Engineering is awarded annually to students in Year 3 of the Electrical, Computer, Software or Mechatronic Systems Engineering program within Western Engineering or students in Year 4 of a combined BESc/HBA degree that includes Electrical, Computer, Software or Mechatronic Systems Engineering, based on academic achievement and an interest in pursuing a career in big data, technology, or software engineering. 

Candidates must be Canadian citizens or eligible to work in Canada. This scholarship will continue for an additional year provided the recipient maintains an 80% average and full-time status in one of the eligible programs. If a recipient selected does not qualify to maintain the scholarship, a replacement recipient from the applicable cohort will be selected. A selection committee made up of representatives from the Faculty of Engineering will short list applicants for the scholarship. Short listed candidates will be interviewed by a representative of the Sponsor, a member of Undergraduate Services, Chair of Electrical & Computer Engineering, and the Director of the Software Engineering Program, or designate.

Recipients will have an opportunity to interview for a work term or internship with RBC in a technology position. Students are not guaranteed a work term or internship with RBC. An offer of full-time employment with RBC may also be extended pending the successful completion of the program and work term at RBC`s sole discretion. A recipient is not obligated to participate in the work term or accept employment with RBC following graduation to receive or retain the scholarship.

This Scholarship will help you to succeed in school today and provide you with early career experience to go on to be an engineer and business leader of tomorrow.
