<div><p><em>Due to the current uncertainty around large gatherings and changing Government guidance, we will host the two residential schools as virtual residential schools.</em></p><p><em>Team engineering</em>aims to develop the essential professional engineering skill of working with others. There are two schools: you'll work as part of a small project team, formed at the first school. Projects offered will tackle contemporary issues requiring a broad range of engineering knowledge and skills, exchange of ideas, use of creativity, design inputs and analysis within a cooperative environment. You'll work together in a team to produce a 'solution', meeting regularly online and using a shared virtual workspace, under guidance from your tutor. Your team's results will be presented and assessed at the second school and through submission of a written report.</p></div>
