Budding engineers enjoy first taste of campus life

Sixth formers were given the chance to sample life as engineering undergraduates as part of the national Headstart programme this summer. The scheme gives A-Level students the opportunity to spend time at various universities across the country and find out what they can expect from life as an engineer.

The School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering hosted a residential week in July where pupils could get hands-on experience of the kind of work they would be involved in. Derek Dring organised the School's contribution to Headstart.
