Online tool to help students prepare for university engineering entrance interviews

i-want-to-study-engineering.org provides a collection of problems, many of which have been used in Cambridge engineering entrance interbviews in the past. The site offers a comprehensive set of hint videos to support students as they work out their solutions. The problems are designed to help students learn to solve multi-stage technical problems, not just as a tool for interview preparation. The site is funded by a generous dontation from The Underwood Trust and is edited by Prof Prager.



In the past he has delivered part of the first year engineering maths course covering convolution, Fourier series, and probability. He has also lectured the first year digital circuits course, including topics such as combinational and sequential logic. He currently teaches a course on medical image acquisition for third-year students.
