University of London Taster Days

The School of Architecture, Computing and Engineering is running taster courses in a range of specialisms including Architecture, Interior and Product Design, Computer Science, Civil and Electrical Engineering and Surveying. Range of activities will include a series of lectures and workshops together with exciting hands on activities in our laboratories and studios. The aim of the day is to give prospective students a better insight into careers that can be pursued in our subject areas. 
As well as having the opportunity to tour our state of the art Docklands campus, you will interact with current students and have the opportunity to talk to lecturers. Attendees will have the chance to view the School's annual student showcase where current students will be presenting their final year projects to the public and employers. It will offer an exciting opportunity to see the type of innovative work our students produce as well as finding out more about potential careers directly from employers. The Taster Days are run in collaboration with the University of London and will run at UEL's Docklands Campus.
