Engineering Extra-Curricular Experiences

'I have been active within the student society DUEM (Durham University Electric Motorsport). We are a society that designs, builds and races solar-powered cars internationally across the globe. In 2015 and 2017 I had the opportunity to go out to Australia to race in the World Solar Challenge. This has given me the opportunity to travel and develop a lot of skills on top of my degree, such as presentation and logistical planning.'

Oliver Headlam-Morley, General Engineering student
