Electronic Engineering Summer Camp
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.
Please note: this Summer School course is now fully booked for the 2017 session.
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.
Throughout the two-week long camp, there will be other planned excursions and free time included in the schedule for participants to explore Cardiff, get a feel for life in the UK and socialise with each other.
