BOURNEMOUTH UNIVERSITY SUMMER SCHOOL
Your summer. Your opportunity. Your future.
Bournemouth University is one of the leading modern universities in the UK and enjoys a solid reputation for excellence through education, research, enterprise and professional practice. And whilst the university remains committed to its region, it has an outlook that is truly global.
Creativity, innovation, partnership and enterprise with an attitude that is friendly, professional, inclusive and supportive is very valued by the university. Bournemouth University is large enough to offer students diversity, yet small enough for them to be part of a friendly and thriving cosmopolitan community.
BOURNEMOUTH UNIVERSITY INTERNATIONAL SUMMER SCHOOL offers the opportunity to learn from the very best academics and practitioners in their field, meet new, lifelong friends and future colleagues from around the world, enjoy the award-winning tourist destinations of Bournemouth and Poole, and travel around the UK visiting areas of cultural significance and beauty.
For the duration of the programme students will be staying in Lyme Regis House, one of the university student accommodations. It is situated in the centre of Bournemouth and is a short bus ride away from the university campus.

Specific issues including sustainability, corrosion, low carbon power and nano-technology will also be explored as well as the latest technological applications employed within the industry. By completing this course students will gain knowledge about the latest technological advances within the field of design engineering. They will learn about important aspects of design engineering including materials, nano technology, CFD (computational fluid dynamics), FEA (finite element analysis), MMC (metal matrix composites), tribology, corrosion and their industrial applications. All learning will be informed by the latest case studies.
- Environmental Studies
This course takes advantage of the University’s unique location near coastal environments of outstanding natural beauty and international conservation importance including: the Jurassic Coast (World Heritage Site), Poole Harbour (RAMSAR site) and the Solent and the Isle of Wight, a microcosm of southern England. This course will help students to develop their observation and field identification skills in a variety of terrestrial, freshwater and marine environments. Students will be encouraged to put their accumulated knowledge into action through designing own projects that further will develop research and communication skills.
