Welcome to Engineering at Southampton!

Well, this week is going to be mega. We have almost 200 young people coming to stay with us to see what engineering is like at Southampton. I'm involved in our Headstart Design Triathlon - which won the Royal Academy of Engineering Education Innovation Award earlier in the year! Over 40 17 year olds will be designing planes, speedboats and electric race cars - so loads of fun to be had by all. I'm also leading a new course for the Smallpeice Trust on 'Computers in Engineering'. Participants will be building a supercomputer, and then using it to design an airliner which they'll then fly in our big flight simulator. Quite a lot to do in 4 days, so it should be great :) This one is sponsored by Microsoft, as part of our Institute for High Performance Computing. We even have an Xbox 360 Project Gotham 3 Tournament night on Tuesday which we're all looking forward too . We're also running a Smallpeice Trust courses in Marine Engineering and Bioengineering - just some examples of the exciting things you can do at Southampton! So it's going to be a mad week. Stay posted for photos and more :) For details of all of our schools outreach activities see...
