Engineering is a complex and competitive field, and even our youngest students will benefit from the academic ‘edge’ that an ORA summer course provides. Students with an interest in the sciences and mathematics at school will benefit from the more applicable subject matter on our Engineering courses, ensuring that they consider the implications of their study far beyond the classroom. This tutelage and experience will stand them in great stead as they move towards higher study, guiding students towards a field in which they can excel.

Enjoy subject-specific excursions

Students attending our Engineering summer programmes have the opportunity to experience a range of age- and subject-specific workshops and excursions during their stay with us. Engineering is a multi-disciplinary subject, and our students are encouraged to explore its scientific, practical, and technical elements by considering real-world situations faced by the contemporary engineer. Trips will take them to view practical and professional examples of excellence in engineering, and its implementation in everyday life.

Maximise your employments prospects

The workplace may seem a world away for the time being, but we believe it is never to early to introduce students to the world of the professional engineer – by bringing the subject to life and considering its impact and achievements in the modern world we hope to ignite students’ enthusiasm and provide them with a wider set of transferable skills. Engineering is a discipline in which students can pursue a variety of directions and specific careers, so being able to put thought into these destinations at this stage is hugely helpful for the majority of students who are still unsure!
