Internship Overview

The Young Engineer Programme gives students aged 15-18 an immersive experience of engineering through a series of interactive role-plays, seminars, case studies, and Q&A sessions with a group of distinguished engineers from some of the biggest names in the industry.

The programme takes place over two days – Saturday dedicated to "Aerospace, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering" and Sunday to "Chemical, Material and Biomedical Engineering". You can choose to attend either one or both days.

Attendance will give you a competitive edge in the race for the best universities and jobs in engineering, and a 'super-curricular' experience to add to your UCAS application.
