The Cambridge LaunchPad Scholarship has been set up by a group of enthusiastic young engineers. We range in age from 19-23. Our engineering careers have started in different ways – the team comprises of university graduates, apprentices, graduate apprentices and industrial placement students.
Meet the Team >
Everything around us is engineered, from your toothbrush to your car, everything is designed and manufactured by engineers. Engineering involves problem solving, designing, manufacturing and many more. As the engineering industry touches everything in our lives it is limitless and will never get boring. Choose engineering and help make a difference to the world.
Why Engineering? >
Engineering is a broad and diverse industry, with a variety of applications it can be a very exciting career choice. Careers range from design engineers to aircraft engine maintenance engineers from wind farms to space craft. If you enjoy problem solving, working in a team and want to know how things are made and how they work then a career in engineering is for you.

Unlimited Clean Energy It is a well known problem that fossil fuel, which supplies the majority of our energy necessity, is not only bad for the environment but also is finite and its resources are diminishing. Renewable energy has been a trending subject for a couple of decades now and it is seen as the […]
Kinetic Energy Recovery System Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) converts the kinetic energy under braking and stores this energy in a form of energy storage (i.e. battery). We have seen the KERS technology being used in the F1 industry from 2009 but recently engineers from Cranfield University released a research project in relation with Easyjet […]
BionicANTs This month’s engineering news is about ants. I am not talking about the small animals that we see on the ground constantly carrying bits and pieces back to their nests with a population of approximately 100 trillion. I am talking about Bionic ANTS (See picture below). These robots are being developed by a company […]
