Study Engineering with Oxford Summer Courses

Engineers take the abstract laws of maths and physics and use them to solve problems in the real world. Engineers across the world are using their skills to solve all sorts of problems; the one thing the people working on the international space station have in common with the team who built the Millennium bridge is the ability to take a problem, understand the scientific principles at play, and then use those principles to get to a solution.

Courses

At Oxford Summer Courses we are committed to the best academic experiences and to the personalised learning that has made Oxford a global academic force. So while all of our tutors are at the top of their fields depending on your age you'll be taught in slightly different ways. We use small group seminars to ensure that you get greater attention than you could elsewhere. On top of that if you're aged 16-17 or 18-24 then you'll receive weekly tutorials from leading academics mirroring the teaching method that makes Oxford a world-renowned university. Choose your Engineering course below:

18-24 years

  • 2 and 4 week courses available
  • Somerville College
  • tutorials & group seminars
  • Breakfast and dinner included

Our Engineering programme for 18-24 year olds is ordinarily taught through four seminars and one one-hour tutorial per week. All readings and seminar questions will be circulated prior to the seminars.

The course allows students the opportunity to explore the underlying principles behind the subject. Students will examine the strengths and limitations of a range of engineering problems including looking in detail at sustainable energy. Students will explore the newer and older sustainable technology methods and draw on physics and mathematics to help understand and develop technical solutions to sustainable energy.
