Leadership development

Sheffield Engineering Leadership and Service Award (SELSA) is a leadership development programme for undergraduate students in the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Sheffield.

Inspired by the acclaimed Gordon Leadership Programme at MIT, SELSA addresses the UK skills gap in engineering by supplementing the outstanding technical knowledge of the University of Sheffield engineering graduates with the skills, confidence and aptitude to take the lead and make a positive impact.

SELSA members are recruited through a competitive selection process specifically designed to identify and recognise potential.

Industry involvement is central to the programme. Our industry partners provide motivational speakers and summer work placements and deliver skills training to our members.

SELSA members learn from these opportunities, whilst industry benefits from the opportunity to work with top engineering talent, identify exceptional candidates, and play a role in their education.
