This scholarship is in honour of the late Professor Olgierd (Olek) Cecil Zienkiewicz, CBE, FREng, FRS. He joined Swansea University in 1961 as Head of the Department of Civil Engineering and was latterly Emeritus Professor of the University. He was an exceptional British Civil Engineer and Scientist who was widely regarded as the `Father of the Finite Element Method`, a computational modelling technique that allows engineers to design ever more challenging structures, aeroplanes or other components and processes with minimal use of expensive experimental testing. The highly prestigious Zienkiewicz Scholarships are only available to International students and reserved only for top calibre students (minimum of a First Class Honours Degree equivalent, IELTS at 7.0 or equivalent and ideally a Masters Degree and/or experience) and awards will be allocated on a competitive basis.
