Course Overview

You will be introduced to engineering concepts that form the foundation of engineering at university, live at an Oxford University College, and gain new abilities as you go through a carefully crafted syllabus during the Immerse Education Engineering summer school course for 16-18-year-olds.

You'll get some basic knowledge to assist you determine whether or not you want to pursue engineering at the university level. Through an interesting course devised by qualified educators from major institutions, you'll master first-year engineering topics and acquire both theoretical and practical understanding.

Campus Overview

In small groups of like-minded and ambitious peers from across the world, you will explore innovative topics and share ideas. You will be taught by professional teachers who have polished their skills via teaching undergraduate students at world-renowned universities such as Cambridge, Oxford, and Harvard in small class sizes averaging 7 people.

A thorough screening procedure ensures that all participants are taught by engaging and helpful instructors who are eager to share their knowledge and skills in order to assure the greatest possible quality of summer school instruction. Immerse is a once-in-a-lifetime academic opportunity.

Example Modules

**Electrical Engineering: **You will apply the principles of electromagnetism to understand a range of electrical components such as digital circuits and sensors. You will then enrich your understanding by exploring digital circuits at the base of modern laptops and smartphones, addressing their limitations. The theory is then put into practice as you construct your own radio receiver.

Mechanical Engineering: Following a review of the key principles of kinematics and the Newtonian laws of motion, you will explore rigid body dynamics for 2D and 3D objects before exploring the engineering design of earthquake-resistant buildings and pitching your own ideas based on an in-class scenario.

**Material Engineering: **At the forefront of nanoscience and nanotechnology research, you will explore this fascinating and diverse field to evaluate existing materials and consider new substances at the forefront of current research. Participants will also explore how new materials are developed and tested.

Engineering A Solution: Participants will be presented with a known problem and asked to work in pairs to create a solution based on the engineering principles that they have encountered. They will then present their idea and demonstrate a working prototype to their peers before facing questions.

Workshops

Workshops are designed to help participants realize their full potential by providing them with the skills they need to prepare for the next steps in their education and their long-term aspirations. You'll improve your study abilities in preparation for future university studies.

These courses cover a wide range of subjects, ranging from 'Productivity Tips' to '21st Century Technology Skills.' You can be sure that you'll learn something new. Immerse, unlike traditional institutions, allows you to study outside of the classroom.

Activities Offered

You have a busy and diverse social schedule outside of classes to help you make the most of your time in Oxford. Punting on the River Cam, zorb football, and a murder mystery night at the college are among the activities available.

During the program, there are two possible excursions: one day trip to Oxford and its constituent colleges, and an optional day trip to London to view the city's most recognized monuments as well as some free time for shopping. Those who do not like to travel to London are welcomed to Oxford for afternoon tea.

The staff of friendly mentors lead activities and excursions, with the primary goal of maximizing your experience.

Food

Every institution has a customary weekly luncheon known as Formal Hall. Students will be able to dress up and dine by candlelight in the wonderful settings of an Oxford University college dining hall.

As an Immerse student, you will have formal dinner three times throughout your stay: once a week in Oxford and once on an excursion day at a Cambridge University college.

Remember to dress up for formal hall because it is a once-in-a-lifetime event.

Accommodation

A few weeks before their arrival, all participants will be assigned to a college based on their dates and topic preferences.
