UWTSD hosting STEM Taster Day

17.03.2017

University of Wales Trinity Saint David's Faculty of Architecture, Applied Computing and Engineering is looking forward to welcoming prospective students to a STEM taster day at the Mount Pleasant campus in Swansea. The faculty is expecting around 100 potential undergraduates to visit when they open their doors on Wednesday 22 March.

The students have been invited to attend a series of taster sessions from the various schools within the Faculty, including sessions such as ‘Robot Wars,’ ‘Green and Tree-mendous,’ ‘Can you beat the UWTSD Stig?’ and ‘Mobile Phones: how do you messages go through the air?’ Lunch will be provided and there will also be an opportunity to meet with representatives from Student Services, Accommodation and Finance.

After the taster sessions, students are invited to a talk about the University’s new SA1 Swansea Waterfront development which is due to open in 2018. There will also be an opportunity to sign up for a walking tour of the new site at a later date.

UWTSD Faculty of Architecture, Applied Computing and Engineering is a multi-disciplinary faculty that covers architecture, automotive and motorsport engineering, construction, computing, electronics, environmental management, logistics, and mechanical and manufacturing engineering. Many courses offered by the Faculty also offer professional accreditations meaning that students gain both a degree and a professional qualification on completing their course.

Free parking has been arranged at NCP Orchard Street car park and a bus shuttle service to bring students to the campus. For more details, please visit our website or contact Kim Wills on: kim.wills@uwtsd.ac.uk

If you are unable to attend this time, our next STEM taster day is on Wednesday 26th April. To book a space, click here.
