EnterpriseTECH UG


We host up to 70 undergraduates during Lent Term. At present, the programme is offered as a single minor module to students at the Department of Physics and the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology. Students taking Biomedical and Biological Studies may also take this module, which is worth 16 per cent of the year.

It is a demanding and practical programme where teamwork is key. Your personal motivation will be an important contributor to your team's success. If you plan to attend, you need to be available for all of the important dates listed below. Lectures are during the normal timetable period and other events, supervisions and workshops are in the evenings.

Module marks are returned to the course directors at home departments and faculties. Although results are not communicated to students, we send detailed feedback on the team efforts back to teams before Easter Term. Results are available to students after the Examiners Meeting in June at their own departments. Participants must submit all assignments by Friday 15 March 2019.

This has been the first time we've been able to gain real world skills within our Physics degree. Considering a large number of physicists go into careers in business, management and consultancy, we should have the opportunity to do many more programmes like this.
