Answers

  1. Who can come?

    Although our Open Days are aimed at prospective undergraduates, everyone is welcome to attend. Refreshments will be available – as will comfortable waiting areas for any parents and teachers who don't want to wander around!

  2. Do I have to book?

    To attend the Engineering Department Open Days you do not need to book with the Department, but you must have booked to attend the Cambridge Open Days or a College Open Day on the same dates.

  3. Is there parking?

    Unfortunately there are no parking spaces for visitors at the Department.

    However, we are within easy walking distance of the city's car parks and the bus and railway stations.

    There are also excellent Park & Ride facilities situated at five sites around the outskirts of the city.

  4. When does it start?

    The Department of Engineering Open Days run from 1pm to 5pm.

  5. Where else is open?

    A lot of other events are taking place as part of the Cambridge Open Days and a number of Colleges are holding their Open Days on the same dates.

  6. What if I can't make it?

    The Open Days are the only opportunity for prospective students to see the Department. Tours and visits are not possible at any other time.

    If you are interested in undergraduate engineering at Cambridge, but are unable to attend either of the Open Days, information is given in our Undergraduate Prospectus.

    You can also try getting to one of the College Open Days, which are spread across the year. There you can ask to speak to one of their Engineering Fellows about the Engineering Department and the courses on offer.
