The world’s greatest leaps in technology have been powered by a team of talented engineers. That is why engineering remains one of the most prestigious and rewarding careers that any student can pursue; and also why the best engineering jobs remain highly-competitive. Such popularity makes work experience hard to secure.
The Young Engineer Programme brings leading engineers from the most desirable sectors - including electric vehicle design, space engineering, and software app engineering - to UCL to provide you with everything you would seek to gain from work experience in this profession. There are three clear outcomes for the day:
Further, you can reference your attendance on the Young Engineer Programme in your UCAS personal statement as an example of where you gained key skills such as teamwork, critical-thinking, commercial awareness and innovative creativity.
Programme Fee: £130/student for the full day. Places are limited. If 2 or more places are booked students receive a 10% discount. Enter code GROUP10 at checkout to benefit from this.
Refund Policy: We do not offer cash refunds for programme bookings. However, we do provide 100% credit against your purchase in case you can no longer attend the programme you have booked for if you cancel before the programme takes place. That credit can be used against any future programme run by InvestIN Education by you or one of your associates. For a full list of terms and conditions, please click here.
