The scholars were rigorously assessed on their academic, practical and leadership abilities in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths), via an assessed application, teacher’s reference and an in-depth interview session led by a panel of top engineers, where they presented an engineering project they had conducted, before being quizzed on their future career aspirations.
