It’s #AntiBoredomMonth. So instead of starting yet another TV series, why not spend your time connecting with us in the Computing, Engineering and Built Environment (CEBE) faculty? If you are joining us in September, here are seven things you can do to beat the boredom and prepare to join us!
1. Follow us on social media
One of the easiest ways to know what we are up to is to follow us on social media. We provide you with regular updates on CEBE news, events and student stories as well as celebrating international days in the CEBE calendar. You can follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
2. Explore our blog
Our blog features a range of student and staff success stories, so you can find out more about the subject area you’re interested in. Each school has a blog focused on content within that industry; Computing, Digital Technology, Built Environment and Engineering. It provides tips, challenges, student stories, advice and gives an insight into student placement experiences, so you can discover how our students prepare for their future careers.
3. Check out our YouTube Channel
The BCU YouTube channel has tons of videos that showcase what our CEBE Faculty has to offer, including a campus tour of our home Millennium Point and tips and advice on preparing for university, and making the most of your time as a student. If you would like more of an insight into student life you can subscribe to the Life at BCU channel, created by our student vloggers. Here’s our Film Production Technology student Archie telling you how to prepare for University.
