Essential Maths for Engineering
This masterclass is aimed at students in Year 12 and 13 who are currently studying Maths, Physics or Mechanics (at AS or A2) and considering a career in Engineering.
This session will predominately focus on Civil Engineering, however the mathematical concepts covered will be relevant to all aspects of engineering.
- From: Thursday 30 April 2015, 1 pm
- To: Thursday 30 April 2015, 4 pm
- Location: City site, Nottingham Trent University, City Campus, Goldsmith Street, Nottingham, NG1 4BU
Maths really can change the world!
During the afternoon, post 16 students will work in small groups with our current civil engineering students and take part in different investigative activities that relate Engineering to Maths, Physics and Mechanics AS/ A-level and explore how these subjects can change the world around us.
The afternoon will include topics such as:
If you are considering applying for a degree in engineering, or have already applied, this masterclass will give you an insight into engineering principles, as well as show you how to apply these principles to practical problems – an essential skill for all engineers!

Bookings are welcome from individual students or school groups*
For group bookings please be aware of the following:We are required to target learners who are from disadvantaged backgrounds and statistically less likely to progress on to further and higher education. We are required to ensure that at least 66% of the learners who engage in our activities meet one or more of these criteria. These include learners who:
- reside in deprived neighbourhoods, where progression rates to higher education are low
- are from low socio-economic backgrounds
- are currently in receipt of a post-16 bursary
- are in receipt of free school meals
- are currently looked-after / in care or have recently left care
- have a disability
- post-16 students on vocational qualifications in state funded institutions (who are doing no more than one standard A-level)
- mature students (those on an Access course and / or those over 21-years-old).
We can help you identify a cohort if you could provide us with the postcodes of learners within your group and an explanation of how they meet the above criteria. Please contact us for more information.
