Future Engineers

We are delighted to invite you to the University of Bradford’s, “Future Engineers” mini-series. This programme has been designed and will be delivered by leading academics from our Faculty of Engineering & Informatics. 

Through the key areas of Chemical, Civil, Biomedical, and Mechanical Engineering, our faculty brings together a blend of disciplines to address 21st Century challenges. We actively collaborate with industry to give our students a real-life and practical learning experience, to ensure they can perform in the sector. Our current and recent partners include the likes of Jaguar-LandRover and the BBC.  

As such, we have designed a programme that will introduce a weekly engineering challenge. You will be asked to consider relevant questions and learn from engineers at the University. Rather than focussing on a specific engineering discipline, each of the sessions will consider skills that all engineers need to apply when working in multidisciplinary teams. 

The programme is tailored to be accessible to a wide audience with no requirement of prior study of Engineering as a subject.  

All participants who complete the full programme of 4 sessions will receive 8 UCAS points towards their UCAS tariff for future study at the University of Bradford, on any programme within the Faculty of Engineering.
