Working with professionals, designers and engineers from employer partners and the university, students get involved in a wide range of individual and team projects, designed to deepen their practical knowledge, skills and understanding.
Students work in project teams to identify, explore and evaluate possible solutions to a real-life engineering or technical problem enriching learning from across the curriculum while building crucial professional skills. All students have the opportunity to lead their team in at least one major project.
Year 12 & 13
In Year 12 students contribute to three/four major projects. One of these will be developed further in Year 13 and entered for the Extended Project Award (0.5 A Level). These projects will deepen and enrich learning from across the curriculum while building crucial professional skills and characteristics.
