The science and engineering courses are developed and delivered by Oxford Engineering academic teams in collaboration with experts from industry and organisations. The summer/winter school is a journey of discovery and exploration into the world of engineering. They are exciting weeks filled with researching, designing, testing, analysing, modifying and perfecting solutions to real-world engineering challenges.
OISAP offers short-courses for talented incoming students with a passion for science and engineering and want to experience studying in Oxford or Cambridge. OISAP combines classes taught by lecturers with tutorial sessions. Throughout the programme, students engage with faculty, academic staff, and peer advisors to develop and enrich their intellectual, research, academic and writing knowledge and skills.
There are currently 2 courses provided in these subjects: Data Science and Machine Learning.
OISAP also provides tailor-made courses according to the specific requirements of our partner universities and their student’s needs.

Science and Engineering or Technology-related Courses
Residential programmes and online courses have a final assessment at the end of the course where students work together in groups to research, plan and deliver a group presentation based on what they have learned on the course. Some courses also have individual assessments of the students in addition to their team project presentations, depending on the instructor’s course plan.
Interdisciplinary Lecture Topic Examples:
●Big Data and Smart Cities
●Artificial Intelligence and Industry 4.0
●The Application of VR and AR Technology
●Cloud Computing and Smart Cities
●Big Data and Social Media
●Innovation and Technology Transfer in Oxford
●Sustainability and the Impact of Human Beings on the environment
The teaching methods used on the courses include interdisciplinary lectures, seminars, discussions, guest lectures, group work, tutorials, interaction and feedback with lecturers, students and the teaching assistant.
Most days will start with a lecture in the classroom, which is complemented with a seminar for Q&A, discussions, assignments and additional explaining. Lectures are held 9:00-12:00 Monday to Thursday each week.
In the afternoon, a series of interdisciplinary lectures are held to help students draw on multiple disciplines and to acquire a deep and thorough understanding of complex issues and challenges. These interdisciplinary lectures support students to develop critical thinking tools which will inform how they form ideas, design projects and resolve issues and concerns.
In addition, students go on local field guided visits around Oxford and London, such as science parks, Mini Cooper Plant, British Museum, Houses of Parliament and more, to gain first hand experience of some of the diverse communities that make up British society.
At the end of the course, students prepare and present in small teams a short presentation and a final individual assignment based on what they have learned on the course. The five-hour workshops and tutorials 3 days prior to the presentation day will be conducted by the teaching assistants to build on the work done on the course and prepare the students for the final team project presentations.
