Portrait of AshimaShanece Wilson, Renewables Graduate (2021/22 Scholar)

The International Masters Scholar was an incredible opportunity that allowed me to follow my passion for sustainability.

I completed my undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering in Canada, before perusing an MSc in Sustainable Energy Systems in the UK!

The programme provided an industry mentor, which allowed me to make connections within those working in ScottishPower, providing me guidance and encouragement to help foster a career in renewable energy.

This scholarship provided the opportunity for me to focus on my education, as well as for me to get involved in my community through supporting women in STEM.

After I completed my Masters, I was offered a position on the Graduate scheme within ScottishPower Renewables. I'm currently in my rotation in offshore Inter Array Cables where I'm working on the optimization of cable layouts!

In November 2022, I graduated from the University of Strathclyde with an MSc in International Marketing as part of the ScottishPower Masters Scholarship Programme.

Undertaking my postgraduate degree as a ScottishPower Masters Scholar provided me with the opportunity to become further qualified in my field and advance my skills in strategic international marketing.

During the scholarship programme, I was paired with a company mentor, allowing me to gain access to additional support throughout the duration of my degree and enabling me to acquire a comprehensive understanding of the role of marketers in the energy industry.

After completing the degree programme, I was offered a position on the ScottishPower Graduate Programme, and I currently work in the Domestic Marketing team. I am extremely grateful to have been offered this opportunity to further my education and establish a career in marketing at ScottishPower.
