Staying on-site at the University of Bath’s modern green campus, students will experience some of the fantastic facilities, such as the Formula Student Electric garage, Biomechanics and Structural Testing Labs and state of the art Wind Tunnels.

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 be tackling design challenges, such as bridge building, and explore the link between engineering and 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.
