Staying on-site at the University of Leeds city centre campus, students will experience life as an undergraduate with access to Engineering lecture theatres and laboratories, Leeds Student Union and The Edge sports facilities.
Each day will cover a different engineering topic, which will give you an idea of what it might be like to study engineering as an undergraduate. You’ll meet academics and current undergraduates studying Engineering at Leeds and take part in practical activities in Civil Engineering, Chemical & Process Engineering, Electrical & Electronic Engineering and Chemistry.
You will be investigating how we can recycle waste materials to make new valuable products, transport and ways of decreasing carbon emissions, the role of line robots and electronics and exploring chemical engineering processes for a sustainable future.
In the evening there will be a series of organised social activities to enjoy or just take time out, to relax in your room. An experienced team from The Smallpeice Trust will be on hand to help and support you throughout your stay.
This event includes the following:
Explore your engineering career options
Hear from leading academics from across different engineering disciplines
Take part in engineering themed practical and lab based activities
Improve your CV with experiences that will help your UCAS application stand out
Stay in halls accommodation on campus and have access to The Edge sports facilities
Student Ambassador Question & Answer session
