Discover Engineering – Wednesday, 10 July

Our Discover Engineering Day will allow Year 12 students and other potential applicants who are interested in studying engineering the opportunity to explore the different course options available to them at university.

Registration for this event is now closed.

It will be of particular interest to students of mathematics and physics, and offers a fantastic opportunity to learn about the huge diversity of practical courses and careers that these subjects offer access to.

Manchester has very good links with industry and carries out research projects in collaboration with industrial partners. This allowed me to get an insight into the real life issues the industry is facing and make contacts.

The overall aim for the day is to help attendees explore the full range of engineering degree programmes on offer from the most popular to the less well known, including Chemical Engineering, Petroleum Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Materials Science, Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, and Civil Engineering. When applying to study, participants will benefit from the insight and hands-on experience this day provides, making them feel more confident that they have chosen the course that best suits them. 

Our Discover Engineering day is a perfect chance for student who either already know that they want to study engineering and want to explore the different courses and options available at Manchester; or for those who enjoy studying mathematics and sciences at A-level and wish to see how these subjects can be combined in an engineering degree. 

The day will particularly suit you if you have a flair for problem-solving, teamwork and lateral thinking. You may also be interested in the grand, global engineering challenges which are facing the modern world.

The day will consist of a series of ten-minute overviews delivered by an academic member of staff as well as workshops delivered by current PhD students. You’ll hear about the subject in more detail and get hands-on with some practical activities. You’ll also have the chance to quiz current students about their subject and why they chose engineering.
