University of Edinburgh
The University of Edinburgh has a rich history of teaching mathematics and is currently ranked 5th in the UK for mathematics (QS 2021). As part of the Maxwell Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Edinburgh forms one of the UK's leading research centres in mathematics. You will explore a wide range of mathematical disciplines through a mixture of lectures, tutorial discussions, practical work, and engaging group project work. Our fantastic team of academic staff and students will work with you to explore engaging topics designed to develop your analytical and problem-solving skills, and have fun along the way! Previous summer school topics include Monte Carlo simulations, statistics, machine learning, maths and magic, number theory, integer solutions to Diophantine equations, Markov chains, matrices, primality testing, and differential equations.
Engineering at The University of Edinburgh has a long and distinguished history, and a vibrant and successful present. Balancing technical depth with practical learning, students explore various specialities including chemical, civil & environmental, electronic & electrical, mechanical and general engineering courses. You will work with our renowned team of academics and current students on both theoretical and practical work in lectures, tutorials, exciting group projects, and practical lab work. Previous summer school topics include bridge building, laser technologies, drones and artificial intelligence, electronic circuits, biomedical engineering, and robotics.
You will also have the opportunity to try out several other subjects during the subject taster sessions, which reflects the flexibility of the Scottish higher education system.
