Engineering Taster Week
in Warton

Warton's Engineering Taster Week (ETW) is a five-day, residential course designed to offer students a glimpse into the day-to-day work of an engineer.
The weeks are held at BAE Systems site in Warton, Lancashire, with accommodation provided nearby. During the week, successful applicants will work in small groups on an exciting and comprehensive engineering project; with the aim of producing a competitive bid for a contract. The week ends with a project presentation to peers, parents and engineering representatives from BAE Systems.
Throughout the week, speakers from across the business will provide an overview of the work carried out by the company, as well as opportunities to tour some of our most advanced facilities including the final assembly of Eurofighter Typhoon.
Overall, the ETW's provide a rare opportunity to see first-hand how some of the world's most advanced military aircraft are designed and produced.
