Engineering and Materials Science Taster Courses 2023

Our taster courses are designed to give prospective students an idea of what it would be like to study in the School of Engineering and Materials Science, whilst finding out a bit more about our courses. 

Take part in taster lab sessions and talks from leading academics and current students to find out how we prepare our students to take a leading role in the world of engineering. 

Our taster courses are open to students in Year 12 studying Maths and Physics, or Chemistry, at A-Level.  Students studying an Engineering-related BTEC Level 3 should also be studying towards A-Level Maths. 

You can now register for our International Women in Engineering Taster Day on Friday 23rd June, and our Science and Engineering Faculty Taster Day on Thursday 29th June.
