When nothing’s certain, anything’s possible. Explore the limitless career of engineering with Oxford Summer Courses
From the products we use in our everyday lives to monitoring equipment on Mars, engineers create and design a wide range of solutions to improve the ways we work, travel, communicate, stay healthy and evolve.
Today, the field of engineering offers more careers choices than any other discipline – perfect if you know you want to be an engineer, but haven’t yet fine-tuned your focus. Our Engineering summer course will introduce to you how to think like an engineer so you can take time to decide where your passion lies. We’ll explore the underlying principles behind the subject and examine the strengths and limitations of a range of engineering problems. From established theory to state of the art materials, we’ll draw on physics and mathematics to help understand how to engineer a better tomorrow.
Machines, skyscrapers and all of society’s needs in between. Master Engineering and be ready to make anything.
When it comes to engineering, there’s no ‘one size fits all’. At a macro level, Engineers are helping clean up oil spills and abandoned industrial sites. At a galactic level, they’re designing spacecraft to explore the planets and at an atomic level, they’re developing data storage solutions, focusing on the spin of electrons in atoms. As if that’s not enough, they’re also giving us clean drinking water and preserving our environment both for current and future generations. All sounds a bit heroic doesn’t it? But that’s the Engineering world for you. If you’re curious what it’s all about – or maybe you have a clear-set path already – sign up to our Engineering course and never look back.
Our established tutors are experts in their fields of study. Gain the skills and experience you need to excel with a unique, unparalleled learning experience.
Each week, you’ll be able to collaborate with leading academics mirroring the teaching method of the iconic, world-renowned and most respected educational establishment in the UK – Oxford University.
As current and past alumni of top universities, they’re highly specialised, recognised and knowledgeable in their chosen fields and can transfer their academic wisdom to you through interactive learning, independent study, seminars, and tutorials, depending on your age group.
James is currently an aerospace lecturer at Milton Keynes College teaching students 16+. He’s worked in a variety of schools and colleges as well as training centres, always looking at the highest standards of learning for all his students. James’s passion for aerospace started at the beginning of his career working as an apprentice with Rolls-Royce aero engines, then going on to work in the service department for the Pegasus engine that powered the Harrier jump-jet. Since then, James has worked with other companies related to aerospace before training to be an engineering teacher. He’s also a keen glider pilot and has a strong interest in drones.
