The Young Engineer Programme

3rd December 2017

University College, London

(see tabs above to learn more about the timetable of each day)

  • 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:

    • You will gain a genuine experience of life as an engineer in various disciplines, and develop ‘the engineering mindset’; a critical trait that distinguishes the most-accomplished engineers from the rest;
    • You will be guided in how to get a high-flying job in engineering– with advice including: which A-levels to choose; which universities to apply for; how to tackle personal statements; and how to excel in CVs, application forms and interviews.
    • You will meet with exceptional engineers from a variety of backgrounds, and be given the chance to ask them questions on a personal basis. These professionals can become vital mentors for you throughout your career.

    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.
