Paxton, who design and manufacture security systems has announced the first recipients of the scheme which has been created in collaboration with the University of Brighton.
The Paxton Scholarship, which launched in November last year, offered the opportunity for students studying engineering and product design related courses at the University to win one of three scholarship places each worth £10,000 plus a 3-month paid work placement with the company from July 2018.
As part of the scholarship, the three scholars will participate in technology research projects at Paxton, that will then form the final year project of their degree course.
In November 2017, the company hosted a student open day at its new state-of-the-art facility, the Paxton Technology Centre, which was attended by over 100 students from the University of Brighton. The open day provided them with the opportunity to learn more about the company and the application process, meet Paxton’s experts in Product Development and Research, and receive hands on technology demonstrations of the company’s diverse product range.
