A former Greenhead College student is celebrating winning a prestigious engineering scholarship.
And now Chloe Adams-Pickford hopes to encourage other young women to follow in her footsteps.
Chloe attended the Graduate Science and Engineering Show in Derby in October.
There she was one of two winners of the Range Rover Evoke WISE scholarship.
The award was set up to encourage more women to enter the competitive world of engineering.
Chloe will receive £1,000 a year during her studies at Keble College, Oxford, and receive professional mentoring to support her path into engineering.
She will also take on an ambassadorial role to share her story and experience with other young women.
Chloe won her place after interviews and presentations and from a field of over 100 entries.
She has now enjoyed her first term at the university and is keen to pursue her ambassadorial role to help change social attitudes towards women in engineering.
Chloe said: “I hope to return to Greenhead to share my experience.
“I have really enjoyed by first term studying engineering - it’s been challenging academically but I’ve had a lot of fun.
“I think it’s important other people don’t miss out on something they really enjoy just because they don’t have the self-confidence or information to go for it.”
Paul Wood from the college described Chloe as a credit to herself and her teachers.
He added: “Less than 10% of those in engineering are female.
“Chloe’s drive, passion and determination will be an asset to the ambition to change the face of this male-dominated field.”<p/>
