This residential summer school aims to broaden students' interest in and experience of a variety of engineering disciplines with a view to assisting them in making an informed course choice. 

Students will be placed within a subject stream based on their current A-level subjects. Supported by undergraduate mentors, students will tackle challenges within the applicable engineering disciplines.

Depending on the stream you will get a selection of workshops from the various engineering disciplines which are offered in the Faculty. This will include some of the following:

  • Aeronautical Engineering
  • Bio-engineering
  • Chemical Engineering
  • Civil Engineering
  • Computing
  • Design Engineering
  • Earth Sciences Engineering
  • Electrical and Electronic Engineering
  • Materials Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering

The course is residential and students will experience broader university life through a series of social activities as well as time to share experiences with other participants and undergraduate mentors.

At the end of the week there will be an academic-style conference where groups will present a poster explaining an engineering concept they learned during the week to their peers, leaders and invited guests.

Will this course suit me?

Yes, if you have a strong interest in studying engineering at University and are currently studying Maths and Physics at A-level.
