5th - 9th of January, 2015

Welcome ESTIEMers and those who are interested!

Cambridge is has a tradition of pushing the boundaries of how we look at the world, understand what's going on and take that understanding to turn it into things which make a massive impact in the world. Gravity is owed to a falling apple in a Trinity College, DNA to musings in the a Eagle pub and the jet engine to work in the engineering department.

So, come to Cambridge and experience a whirlwind tour of the ways in which people today are thinking outside the box in the quest for positive change - as well, naturally, as a whirlwind tour through the slightly quirky ways in which students here attempt to 'play hard' (we'll leave it up to you to judge whether it meets ESTIEM standards!)

We look forward to welcoming you to Cambridge to leave you thinking differently about the world and bursting with ideas of how to change it.

Introductin to 3D Printing

3D printing or additive manufacturing (AM) is any of various processes for making a three-dimensional object of almost any shape from a 3D model or other electronic data source primarily through additive processes in which successive layers of material are laid down under computer control. A 3D printer is a type of industrial robot.

Transfer of first world technologies to developed countries

Through industrial visits, workshops and talks, expect to be stretched by how eco-systems of companies can make innovation thrive, how 'expensive' solar technology can bring electricity to the African rural poor and how shifting from selling a product to turning it into a service can corner an industry.

Punting under the bridge of sighs

Explore Cambridge and the local culture

Formal hall, ridiculously cheesy club music and punting down the Cam in the middle of January - need I say any more?
