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.
