Subject overview

Building better prosthetics, developing clearer imaging techniques and developing ultrasound alternatives to surgery are just some of the ways Biomedical engineers are using their understanding of Maths and Physics to improve human health. If you are looking for a broad degree that develops your mechanical, electrical and computational engineering skills and gives you the tools to apply these to medical and biological problems then Biomedical engineering could be for you. You’ll have taster lectures each day to introduce the breadth of our subject, but the majority of the week will be spent in our electronics lab building your own medical sensors.

Subject overview

The Chemistry stream will cover topics in inorganic, organic and physical chemistry. As practical experience is a major part of all Chemistry undergraduate courses at Imperial, much of your time will be spent in an undergraduate laboratory undertaking practical work. You can expect to be challenged and to gain practical and analytical skills as well as develop your communication and problem solving skills.

Subject overview

Earth and Planetary Science is a highly interdisciplinary degree – providing skills in geoscience, physics, chemistry, mathematics, engineering and computing. During your time in the Department of Earth Science and Engineering, you will learn how to apply knowledge of Earth’s sedimentary geology to Mars, identify and classify rocks and minerals, and understand the processes that shape the Earth and Planets. You wil also hear from our Earth and Planetary Science researchers who will talk about their cutting edge research.

Subject overview

Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) is more than just power generation.  It involves the design of smartphones, development of 4 and 5G, autonomous vehicles, computer games and contactless payment systems.  Electrical and electronic engineers are inventors, they are able to make devices smaller and more efficient and they don't work in isolation. Prosthetic limbs are a combination of electrical and mechanical engineering; consumer goods not only need to work well but also have to look appealing so people want to buy them.  To give this wider view of how EEE fits in with other disciplines there will be short sessions with our Mechanical Engineering and Design Engineering Departments.

Overall course will reflect the typical life of our undergraduate students with a combination of lectures giving a flavour of both our first year modules, and a view of some of our research. You will also be based in the laboratories where we will introduce you to some of the practical skills and put theory into practice.

Subject overview

Our Genetics Summer School is designed for A-level students who might be considering a Biology related degree. It has a three-day lab practical supported by University-style teaching sessions. In the lab, you will stain the brains of fruitfly embryos, and using a confocal microscope capture some of your very own images. You will also have the chance to meet current PhD students at Imperial College London, and learn more about their research.

Subject overview

Life Sciences is the study of living organisms and covers areas such as biology, biochemistry, microbiology, physiology and zoology. This stream is aimed at students who are considering studying any of the life sciences at university and will cover topics such as malaria transmission and treatment, comparative physiology and bacterial resistance. You will spend much of your time in the lab doing experiments as well as taking part in group discussions and debates which is representative of a degree in Life Sciences at Imperial.

Subject overview

Maths find its way into all corners of our teaching and research here at Imperial—but what can you expect from a degree course in the subject? Out students get better and better at doing calculations, and learn to apply the subject to a wider and wider class of problems; they also learn to think more and more carefully and rigorously about what we can really say we know. That’s what the Maths Strand will give you a taste of. You’ll divide your time among our base room, our state-of-the-art computing labs and our improvised rocket launchpad. You’ll apply calculus to space flight, and knowledge about prime numbers to the problem of secret communication. You’ll look hard at the concept of infinity, and discover it’s subtler than you may think. And you’ll see beautiful complexity emerge from simple mathematical processes.

Subject overview

Building DNA probes for cancer diagnosis, creating tissue scaffolds to support wound healing and even creating synthetic life, Molecular Bioengineers use their understanding of Biology and Chemistry to engineer solutions to medical and biological problems. This is a truly interdisciplinary degree – as well as biology and chemistry you will use skills from maths, physics and computing to understand and improve biological systems. This course will involve a significant amount of time in wet labs genetically engineering micro-organisms to perform useful functions. You’ll also have a series of taster lectures exploring how engineers are at the forefront of medicine.

Subject overview

Physics is a vast subject, and the best tool we have to understand our Universe and our place within it. During the week we will look at a variety of physics topics including finding exoplanets in astrophysics, building communications devices in electronics, creating particle detectors to investigate relativity and finding out about some of the weirder materials that make up our world such as superconductors and nanotubes. Through a series of lectures, practical investigations and research, we will explore the laws of our Universe.
