The Engineering stream offers students the opportunity to explore a range of engineering subjects at Imperial College London. It combines elements of engineering and design and includes specialist seminars and workshops delivered by different departments from Imperial’s Faculty of Engineering. You will be exposed to subject content and possibilities across this broad discipline; develop essential engineering skills, and work in groups to find solutions to real engineering challenges.

In 2019, students will take part in sessions led by departments across the Faculty of Engineering, including Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Earth Science, Material Sciences and Design Engineering. Students will be exploring a range of topics, taking part in team challenges and undertaking practical experiments.
