Engineering and Digital Design Taster Day

EDA student

Join us at our Virtual Engineering and Digital Design Taster Day at the University of Kent on Thursday 10 December 2020, from 4pm to 6pm GMT.

At this virtual two-hour event, we will present the latest teaching and research from experts and students in the School of Engineering and Digital Arts who look forward to sharing their exciting subjects and experiences at Kent with you. Additionally, there’s an opportunity for you to ask us questions, about University life, our friendly School, our courses, how we equip our students for industrial placements and employment, and our fantastic facilities.

Professor Richard Guest, Head of the School of Engineering and Digital Arts, said, “The Taster Day is an ideal opportunity for anyone considering studying a design or engineering related subject at university to help them make an informed choice about their options. The event will give you the chance to spend time with our undergraduate students and our friendly lecturers, and find out more about life on our beautiful Canterbury campus.”

The Taster Day in Engineering and Digital Design would be particularly helpful for those who are considering the University of Kent as one of their UCAS choices and will provide you with a taste of the skills and technologies you’ll learn with us. You’ll be able to find out everything you need to know about studying Engineering and Digital Design from the comfort of your own home.
