What’s it all about?

We are excited to offer you a summer school at a great modern university, in a global city with a large student population. Manchester Met has been awarded TEF silver, recognising our high quality teaching in a friendly and supportive environment. Our curriculum is focused on producing confident graduates, ready for working in industry, entrepreneurship, or a career in research.

We’re as excited about your future as you are.

The School of Engineering is proud to offer courses that have a blend of research-led and industry focused curriculum, giving students the possibility to explore current and novel aspects of Engineering.

This course will equip students with an understanding of mechanical and electronic engineering underpinned by knowledge of project management and design processes which guide engineers in their professional careers.

Students will undertake work independently but also in a group setting – culminating in an end of course award ceremony.

What will I be doing? 

  • Apply your physics knowledge to practical applications and use it to understand how these are applied in Mechanical and Electrical engineering contexts
  • Get involved with practical team-based projects and competitions.
  • Be taught the theory and practice of stresses and structures, forces and motion, power and electronics, embedded systems, project management, design process, applied engineering principles
  • Receive talks from professionals and start-ups in Engineering
  • Find out about degree programmes at Manchester Metropolitan University
  • Work in teams on a multi-disciplinary project providing an engineering solution related to one of the Engineering Global Challenges
  • Meet students from the student life team and find out about being a student at Manchester Metropolitan Unveristy
