Have you ever wondered what engineers actually do? Engineers design, create, explore, innovate and work collaboratively with experts from many other disciplines for the design and development of tools, materials and technologies in medicine, communications, construction, environmental sustainability, food technologies, space programs, transportation, sport and entertainment. From artificial bones and smart medical machines that perform delicate surgery, to cutting edge sports training equipment and high-tech clothing, to everyday household appliances, personal devices and energy-efficient equipment, engineers help shape the future and make a difference in the world we are living in. 

UCL Faculty of Engineering in partnership with UCL Widening Participation, are inviting Year 8 and 9 students from across London to experience the range of modern engineering and its significance to human wellbeing in a series of masterclasses taught by our academics, researchers and students. You will spend the sessions learning about the latest advances in biochemical engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical and electronic engineering, robotics, biomedical engineering, material science and inclusive design.

At the end of the programme you will receive a UCL Engineering Certificate as an accreditation for successfully completing the course.
