Women in Research Engineering and Design (WiRED) is an all-day enrichment event for year 6 primary school students who have an interest in or aptitude for maths, science, design, technology and computing. The event will be hosted by the School of Engineering and Digital Arts at the University of Kent’s Canterbury campus.

Engineering Education Scheme (Year 12)

In this scheme, a number of professional engineers work with teams of high ability Year 12 students and their teachers, for about 6 months, on an engineering project. The scheme includes a residential university workshop and an assessment day. The University of Kent is a regular host for these events.

For details of our degree programmes and how to apply, please visit our Undergraduate study page.

The best thing about choosing a subject that's related to technology is that it's always changing, so you'll never be bored; there will always be something new to learn.
