Engineering is a discipline at the forefront of innovation and problem solving. Through the application of complex mathematic and scientific principles, engineers are responsible for solving structural and technological problems from creating the perfect cup of coffee to building a structure that will stand the test of time. On the two-week Immerse Engineering programme, participants aged 16-18 will learn the skills necessary to work creatively and use their imagination to design elegant and robust solutions to challenging real-life problems. Participants will explore a diverse range of undergraduate-level Engineering topics, providing a taster of what it’s like to study the discipline at university level.
Participants in the programme follow a comprehensive curriculum that covers a wide range of the most fascinating topics in Engineering. As they work through material, participants will cover everything from the most basic principle of material engineering to the complex laws governing thermodynamics and fluids. Additionally, participants will be assigned a final project where they’ll be tasked with solving a challenging engineering problem of their choice. The programme is an exceptional opportunity to explore a subject that is not typically explored at secondary school level.
Throughout this programme, participants will live and study at a Cambridge University college. This exciting opportunity to live more independently is a great first step before participants begin their undergraduate studies. By the time they return home, participants will have learned both key engineering concepts, alongside gaining first-hand experience of university life.
