September 2021 sees the launch of our new Nucleus VI Programme For Aspiring Engineers.
On the programme, you will meet people already working as professional engineers to gain an insight into the profession. You will all work together as a cohort towards the GreenPower Challenge for 16-25 year-olds, where you will design, build and race an environmentally friendly electric car. You will do this with the help of engineering academics at the University of Northampton.
Through a series of weekly sessions, both at Northampton Academy and on campus at the universities engineering labs, the academics will take you through the process, covering the key engineering concepts.
Dr Adams from the University of Northampton and his team will assist our students in this challenge by hosting weekly sessions. These will include:
- Trips to the engineering labs at the university
- Meeting the engineering academics and hosting workshops to cover aspects relevant to most engineering types such as teamwork, project management, project objectives, creativity, sustainability, electronics, computer simulations, project management, efficiency, and aerodynamics. Dr Adams and his team are in the process of putting together a weekly timetable for us next year.
- Subject webinars and talks with the Engineering Admissions tutors from the University of Nottingham as well as Engineering site visits (COVID dependent)
