Paxton, the global brand of electronic IP access control and door entry systems has announced the first recipients of its new scholarship programme in conjunction with the University of Brighton.

The initiative, 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 selected 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.

From those that applied, 16 were then invited to an assessment day, where they undertook a series of practical tasks and interviews. Following this, the successful three students were then selected, who are: 

  • Yury Johnson, aged 20 who is studying (BEng) Electronics and Computing
  • Laurence Budd, aged 21 who is studying (BSc) Computer Science
  • Sam Innes, aged 20 who is also studying (BSc) Computer Science

Commenting on the programme, Adam Stroud, Paxton’s Chief Executive, said: “I’d like to congratulate the three students that have secured the 2018 Paxton Scholarship. The Paxton Scholarship is a long-term initiative designed to ensure that we can secure the bright-minds needed for the company’s continued success and prosperity. I am thrilled at how the initiative was embraced by both the team at Paxton as well as the students and staff at the University of Brighton. 

“We hope that for the students involved, the Paxton Scholarship will mean much more than just financial help.  Industry experience, without having to take a year out, will be invaluable to their development and help them to decide what career they wish to pursue.  We also believe it will continue to highlight the diverse range of roles available within the security industry and the opportunities offered by a growing and exciting business sector.”

Sam Davies, University of Brighton’s Director of Philanthropy & Alumni Engagement said: “Congratulations to the students and to Paxton for introducing this exciting and unique opportunity.

“We are delighted to have partnered with Paxton in establishing this new scholarship programme which provides our students with access to the realities of the workplace and the challenges companies like Paxton face on a day-to-day basis.”
