EnterpriseTECH

EnterpriseTECH is offered during Lent Term for up to 70 undergraduates. At present, this is an assessed module for Part III students at the Department of Physics, the Department of Chemical Engineering & Biotechnology, and Part II students taking Biomedical and Biological Studies.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis until the deadline of 23 November 2018 for Lent 2019. As the course is over half full (as of 10 October), we recommend submitting your application as soon as possible using the link provided on this page.

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.

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.
