Expand your career horizons, with our ‘Future Cities’ virtual course for Year 12 Students!

If you're a Year 12 engineering student in England, Wales, Scotland, or Northern Ireland, don't miss out on this incredible opportunity to explore the world of Future Cities. Join us as we embark on a journey to create smarter, more sustainable urban environments for generations to come.

What will the cities of the future look like? It's a question that has intrigued minds for generations. As we stand on the brink of a new era, one thing is certain: civil engineers will play a pivotal role in shaping and developing our future cities. Civil engineers are the architects of tomorrow's urban landscapes, working tirelessly to create cleaner, safer, and more energy-efficient environments for us to live and work in. With emerging technologies like self-driving and electric vehicles on the horizon, and urgent challenges such as the climate emergency at hand, the demand for innovative civil engineering solutions has never been greater. And now, with our Future Cities virtual course, Year 12 engineering students can delve deep into this fascinating field and explore the possibilities that lie ahead.

In our Future Cities course, students will have the opportunity to discover how civil engineers design and build environmentally friendly infrastructure. From buildings and bridges to water and waste services, transportation systems, heating, and power, participants will gain invaluable insights into the intricate workings of our modern cities. Moreover, they will learn how to manage and maintain existing infrastructure, ensuring its future sustainability.

One of the most exciting aspects of this course is its hands-on approach to learning. Through practical tasks like bridge design and foundations challenges, students will not only grasp the theoretical concepts but also get a taste of real-world engineering scenarios.

Over three dynamic days, students will enhance their CVs and UCAS applications, gaining valuable skills and experiences that will set them apart in the competitive field of engineering. They'll also have the opportunity to collaborate with peers and experienced academics from the University of Southampton, exploring the interdisciplinary nature of design and innovation.

This unique learning experience will help familiarize students with various career pathways into Civil Engineering, covering the built environment, water and waste engineering, transport, and energy systems. Through hands-on activities, small research projects, and team presentations, participants will gain practical experience and a deeper understanding of the role civil engineers play in shaping our future.
