About Imperial College London

The Great Exhibition of 1851, which Prince Albert, Queen Victoria’s husband, oversaw in neighbouring Hyde Park, is whence Imperial College gets its name. The show introduced the globe to British business, technology, and science. It was a huge success, and in 1881, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Natural History Museum, and the Geological Museum were all inaugurated in the South Kensington neighbourhood using the exhibition’s proceeds.

About the Shawki Saad PhD Scholarship.

The scholarship is funded by an endowed donation from the late Professor Shawki Saad. He was a professor of civil engineering at Khartoum University in Sudan, and will be given to students joining the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.

Four students will be supported by the programme, which will pay for their tuition in full as well as their stipend and travel expenses. The new scholarship programme expands on an earlier one for Sudanese students.

A student prize for sustainability-related research in sub-Saharan Africa is also announced along with the new scholarship. The student award and scholarship will support College initiatives to address systemic worldwide engineering and sustainability concerns.

Scholarship Topics

This scholarship is open to research projects in areas including:

  • Transport,
  • Fluid Mechanics,
  • Environmental and Water Resources,
  • Structures,
  • Systems,
  • Materials, and Geotechnics.

Professor Ochieng said: “We want to attract the brightest students from across the globe and this generous new scholarship will help to nurture and develop the next generation of engineering leaders.

“The world is facing many global challenges and the developing world is often much more adversely impacted.

“If we are to solve some of the world’s most pressing challenges such as sustainable transport and water security we need to ensure that engineering research is supported and we have a pipeline of skilled, young engineers in sub-Saharan Africa that can make a vital impact on society.”
