Ages 15-18 •
Live Online OR In-Person
The Young Engineer Weekend gives students aged 15-18 an immersive experience of Engineering through a series of role-plays, seminars, simulations and Q&A sessions led by a group of experienced engineers over 2 days. You can choose to attend the programme either in-person or ‘Live Online’.
Attendance will give you a competitive edge in the race for the best universities/colleges and jobs in engineering, and a 'super-curricular' experience to add to your university or college application.

We do not anticipate any Covid-related issues preventing us from delivering the in-person programme. Any government guidance on Covid-related safeguarding (such as the wearing of masks and social distancing) will of course be adhered to. We have managed to successfully deliver in-person programmes during the Covid-19 pandemic (including during the summers of 2020 and 2021), with excellent feedback. We are therefore highly experienced in giving students a fantastic experience even with social distancing rules in place.
In the unlikely event that the in-person programme is cancelled because of Covid-19 then students will have two options: i) move to the next in-person date; ii) move to the ‘Live Online’ version of the programme you selected and be refunded the difference in price. (If you pay via credit because you postponed a previous booking then the credit note will be reissued to you in full).
