Engineering in General and General Engineering at the University of Sheffield with an Electrical Flavour

This taster session will introduce the definition of engineering and what the general engineering programme at the University of Sheffield involves.

Dr Mahmoud Masoud will explore the interdisciplinary context of electric vehicles, as well as the fundamentals of Ohm's law, Kirchoff's voltage law and motor equivalent circuits and closed loop control. You'll also have the opportunity to talk to some of our current general engineering students, as well as Dr Mahmoud Masoud.

This session is suitable for students in years 12 and 13.

It's a great way to enhance your knowledge on subjects that you might not have covered in A Level and you might get a head start in some university content.
