Student Outreach Projects
They are supported by WMGLink opens in a new window, the High Value Manufacturing CatapultLink opens in a new window and industry partners to design and build engineering projects.
The WMG Outreach TeamLink opens in a new window also support the students in delivering outreach activities to inspire young audiences about careers in engineering.
The Outreach component of the Student Projects aims to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers, and to raise awareness with young audiences of the contribution of engineering to society.
What are the Student Projects about?
Hear from David Cooper, our Student Projects lead.
Who are the students working on projects?
Hear from Prem Gill, Warwick Racing Team Leader.
“Following on his visit at WMG, my son now feels inspired to do a degree apprenticeship in mechanical engineering. Thank you for giving him a clear sense of direction. He […] was very impressed by the Engineering student [from Warwick Racing] who spoke to him. He gave him a real insight on course choices and what it’s like to study Engineering at Warwick!
