What will be covered in the online engineering stream?

Combining elements of engineering and design, this stream will expose you to a range of content across this discipline.

Through specialist workshops, you’ll develop key engineering skills and work in groups to find solutions to real engineering challenges.

Engineering programme content

The engineering stream is led by a number of Imperial academic departments, to give students an understanding of the subject areas which make up the discipline: 

The presenters were very engaging and showed passion for teaching, answering all questions and looking to interact as much as possible with us."

Alvaro, Spain


Within the academic sessions, you will explore concepts that are central to engineering, and participate in activities such as isometric sketching, space mission planning, and experimentation with smart materials. You will be given unique insight from Imperial academics with different engineering backgrounds, to help understand the many applications of engineering in the real world. 

In 2020, Imperial’s Dyson School of Design Engineering ran a session to challenge students’ creativity and practical skills. Working in teams, students considered human design versus evolutionary learning using an online simulator. In a session run by the Department of Materials Science, students watched live experiments being performed on smart materials. 

Enterprise Lab STEM Challenge

Alongside academic sessions focusing on engineering, in the second week of the programme you will join students from the other subject streams to participate in an entrepreneurial challenge presented by Imperial Enterprise Lab. More information on the Enterprise Lab STEM Challenge can be found here.
