Engineering and Physical Sciences Outreach Events

The College of Engineering and Physical Sciences organises annual events for school students to come on to campus and learn about our subjects.

These events cover the wide variety of subjects on offer within the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences. Individual Schools and Departments also organise events about their own subjects.

If you would like more information or to express you interest in one of our events, please get in touch with Rachel Burgess, our Outreach and Schools Liaison Officer. Events will be publicised through our mailing list when places are available.
