Engineering student building robotic prototypes

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.

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

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.
