Past students at Engineering your Future said ;

“The most rewarding aspect was that finally I had a clear understanding of engineering. I had all my questions answered.”
“Loved every minute of the week. The practical challenges provided me with a fun and unique learning experience that I wouldn’t have had in school.”

“A wonderful opportunity to learn about technology, medicine, design and other aspects of engineering. And you get to make new friends and met interesting people.”
