We are hosting two residential courses for school pupils which are hosted in conjunction with the Engineering Development Trust (EDT).  Please note: applications need to made well in advance directly with the EDT at​

  • Our Focus on Materials course introduces approximately 36 Year 12 / S5 students to the way in which materials science is taught at the University of Cambridge. The students spend time attending lectures and practical sessions during their four-day residential course. There are additional sessions covering other aspects of university life. This course has run annually since 2010 (except for 2013, when the Department moved to a new facility, and during the Covid-19 pandemic).

  • Our Inspire course is suitable for Year 11 / S4 girls and will introduce Materials Science themes alongside other transferable skills.  This course will be delivered in conjunction with Jesus College.
