Engineering Summer Courses with Oxford Royale Academy
Introduction to Engineering is designed to provide students aged 13-15 with a head start in the fascinating discipline of Engineering. The course will offer an insight into what future study or a career in Engineering might be like.
Our Engineering Preparation Programme aims to introduce students to the wide range of options they have when studying engineering at university, as well as the challenges facing the modern engineer.
This course offers a unique opportunity for a small group to spend their summer in the heart of the UK's Motorsport Valley®, building and testing of a self-assembly Caterham Car.
On this course, you'll learn about the different branches of engineering: civil, mechanical, structural, electrical, chemical, and aeronautical. You'll learn the vocabulary and skills necessary to grasp complex topics and problems.
Discover a world-famous university town
Our Engineering programmes are available across three ORA sites: Oxford, Cambridge, and St Andrews. Here at ORA our summer programmes are designed with the academic rigour of each course’s prestigious location firmly in mind, and Engineering students will find no shortage of inspiration in all three cities. From Oxford’s dreaming spires, to the white bricks of Cambridge and the Scottish Gothic grandeur of St Andrews, all three locations boast stunning sights and internationally recognised educational institutions.
Gain a head start on future study
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!
Make the most of the ORA experience
An ORA Engineering summer course will prove an unforgettable summer experience, combining academic rigour with a lively, engaging classroom setting and a host of parties, workshops, and excursions for all ages. Students staying in St Andrews, Cambridge or Oxford will enjoy a superb course, world-class extracurricular activities, and make connections to last a lifetime. Whether you are a seasoned ORA alumnus or keen to try something new, it will be our very great pleasure to welcome you to live, study, and socialise with us this summer!
