Open Days

What's it really like to study engineering at Oxford? What are our colleges like? For answers to these questions and more, join us at the Department of Engineering during our University-wide Open Days. Stay for an hour - or the whole day.

There'll be taster lectures and demos from academics and researchers, information for parents and carers, talks by current students and tours of the Department.

Uncover Engineering

Uncover Engineering is a free residential course pilot which will let you discover what it’s like to be an engineer – trying out a subject you're not taught at school.

You’ll take part in hands-on workshops across a range of engineering disciplines. From programming robots to creating and testing packaging for breakable items, you’re sure to find something you’re passionate about.

Staying in Oxford University’s Somerville College and attending classes at the Department of Engineering Science, it’s a peek behind the scenes at student life.
