Electronic Engineering Summer Camp
21 July - 4 August 2018
Our summer camp offers advanced undergraduates and recent graduates the opportunity to develop their knowledge of electronic engineering and gain first-hand experience of laboratory work and industrial application.
You will be able to work with world-leading research and academic staff from in the School of Engineering's high-quality facilities, located in the multi-million-pound Queen’s Buildings complex.
You will also have the opportunity to take part in a workshop with National Instruments, the global leader in test, measurement and control solutions.
In addition to a fantastic learning experience, our Electronic Engineering Summer School includes accommodation in the centre of the city, two cultural trips in cities across the UK and entertaining social events in our vibrant Welsh capital. Our Summer School will give you the chance to immerse yourself in the British culture and travel the UK with new friends from all across the world.
