EnterpriseTECH UG

EnterpriseTECH undergraduates

EnterpriseTECH is offered across Lent Term for up to 70 undergraduates. It is an assessed (borrowed) module for undergraduates from Physics, Chemical Engineering, Modern & Medieval Languages and Biomedical & Biological Sciences.

EnterpriseTECH is a demanding and practical programme where teamwork is key. Your personal motivation will be an important contributor to your team's success. You will be allocated a project and assigned to a team by the Programme Director.

Application deadlines by department

  • Physics and Chemical Engineering: 22 November 2019 (17:00)
  • Biological and Biomedical Sciences (20 places available): 16 August 2019 (17:00)
  • Modern and Medieval Languages and Linguistics (10 places available): 21 June 2019 (17:00)

This is a popular programme and places are limited. In your application you are also required to provide a short personal statement that expresses your motivation and interest in participating in the programme.

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 13 March 2020.

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.
