The GU68 Engineers Trust, a Scottish Registered Charity, was formed by the 1968 Engineering graduates from the University of Glasgow in 2004 with the purpose of advancing education, in particular the study of engineering at the University of Glasgow, by the provision of bursaries for students and sponsorship of final year projects.
The Trust is looking for a number of new Trustees, who need not be graduates of the University of Glasgow, although it would be desirable for them to have a connection with the School of Engineering, either as graduates, students or staff, or in some other way. However, we would welcome applications from anyone who supports our activities and aims, with business or other skills or experience which would be useful to the Trust. Trustees who graduated as mechanical engineers are currently under-represented, and we would specially welcome female applicants as for so many years Engineering did not attract them as a career.
Trustees would be expected to attend two meetings a year where the awards are considered, either in person or remotely, and a few more informal meetings with students and staff, but need not be based in the Glasgow area. The posts are voluntary and the Trustees bear their own expenses.
