The Young Software Engineer Summer Experience gives students aged 15-18 a 360-degree, fully-immersive experience of working in software, cybersecurity and data science.
Over the course of 15 days, students aged 15-18 will have some of the most prestigious experiences of software engineering that one can imagine: building your own app from start to finish, designing your own video game, using cybersecurity techniques to probe a business for weaknesses in their security, and using data to save the planet from climate disaster.
Students on the programme will also enjoy an immersive visit to a top cybersecurity agency, experiences with a top tech-marketing firm and a visit to one of London’s leading Fintech companies.
Join us for a life-changing experience that will serve as an outstanding differentiator on your university application form and set you up for a future as a successful software engineer.
