If you can take a problem, apply a scientific principle and find a solution, your name should be down for our Engineering course. Extend your skills so you can get over even more obstacles and refine your approaches and techniques to fast track your career in this dynamic field.
Maximum class size of 8
13-15 year olds
14 days commencing:
Study Engineering with us and you’ll explore the underlying principles behind the subject. Examine the strengths and limitations of a range of engineering problems including sustainable energy and technology and the connections between physics and mathematics in drawing a conclusion. Once you’ve qualified, you’ll have the skills and aptitude to join the Engineering elite – after all, your industry is home to those who worked on the international space station and the Millennium bridge. The sky’s the limit.
Learning in a small group (no more than 8 students and often fewer) means that you get quality time with your teacher and ask as many questions as you like! Through interactive learning, our teachers will guide you through new concepts and assign you practice tasks to build your knowledge and skills. You will also have an opportunity for group work, independent research, and homework assignments to be discussed in class. Small classes mean everyone gets to have their say, and students learn from debating with one another, as well as from their tutor.
It’s all about balance. Study with us at Cambridge and we’ll help you embrace everything the city has to offer – from socialising with new friends with shared interests to field trips and excursions for practical lessons you just can’t learn from a textbook. We understand students. We make sure you’re stimulated with a social calendar that packs it all in, from traditional guided tours of the University museums to a tranquil afternoon punting on the River Cam.
And of course, you’ll experience the true Cambridge way of life from weekly formal dinners to competitive debating and croquet. Remember to save some energy for dancing the night away at a disco!
"I was a shy person before coming on the courses but asking and answering questions in tutorials has improved my confidence immensely – the tutors were always happy to answer any question, however silly it may have seemed, and the course staff were always so friendly, on hand to answer any questions about the course, or the teaching system in Oxford in general."
"What I liked about the activities is that everyone is in one big group for the activities. Also the activities that we did are very fun and well picked for our age group. The best activity I would say is archery tag."
"My tutor was so understanding and helpful, and made sure to give me lots of individual attention."
"I wanted to learn about different engineering concepts as my university does not allow for exploration of other types of engineering. I wanted to gain knowledge about other engineering disciplines and their application in sustainable systems."
Home to Cambridge University since 1209, this city is famous for its cyclists, its museums, and of course, the 107 Nobel Laureates. But have you heard of the Mathematical Bridge (c.1749)- the first bridge built using mathematical principles? Or did you know that the first official game of football with rules similar to those we use now was played in 1848 in the middle of the city? Cambridge has so much to offer, from a vibrant history to cobbled streets and cozy cafes. It’s the perfect place to study, and spend a summer exploring.
You will be staying in single or twin room college accommodation, occupied by students during term time, located within a mile of the centre. Your accommodation will be ideally located to explore all the best areas of the city, from its oldest colleges to its lovely cafes. Ensuite rooms may be available at some locations.
You will get a chance to eat in a variety of restaurants in Cambridge, tasting food from all over the world. On top of that, you’ll be treated to a delicious formal dinner in your college - a three course meal where everyone gets a chance to dress up!
