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 course will introduce you to a range of engineering branches 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 including looking in detail at sustainable energy. Assessing both past and current sustainable technology methods, we’ll draw on physics and mathematics to help understand and develop technical solutions to sustainable energy for a brighter, more efficient 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.
Ngoni Mugwisi is pursuing a doctorate in Electrical Engineering in Oxford’s Energy and Power Group. A Rhodes Scholar and Resolution Fellow, he is deeply interested in carbon-neutral energy technologies and his research explores applications of power electronics in renewable energy systems in the developing world.
He holds a BSE degree in Electrical Engineering and a minor in Engineering Management from Arizona State University where he was a MasterCard Foundation Scholar. While at Arizona, Ngoni instructed circuit design as a teaching assistant, tutored calculus and mentored student robotic teams in the state First Lego League. He is passionate about enabling others to realize their potential and strives to inspire students to pursue subjects in the STEM field. In his spare time, he is a long distance running enthusiast, and intramural footballer.
Taimoor has experience of teaching students who are in either engineering or seeking a scientific career. He is currently reading a PhD in Engineering Sciences at the University of Oxford, UK, where he is working on lasers and optics.
He obtained his undergraduate degree in Electrical engineering from Government College University Lahore, Pakistan and earned his master degree with distinction in Electronic Engineering with distinction from Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute (GIK) of Engineering Sciences and Technology, Pakistan. Taimoor has experience in lab demonstration to first-year engineering students at Oxford University and he has spent one and half years as a full-time teacher in GIK Institute, Pakistan. He is trained to assist students on various levels who are struggling to either understand difficult concepts or improve their grades in science or engineering and help them deciding their engineering career path. Taimoor is articulated, adaptable and approachable, and he takes pride in delivering excellent tuition.
