Why come to a taster day

Attending one of these days is the best way to find out what makes engineering with us special. Even if you've already come along to one of our Open Days, the Applicant Taster Day provides you with that extra level of detail to inform your choice. It is also an opportunity for us to find out about you and what drives you to explore your interest in engineering with us.
