Engineering Science at Balliol College

Engineering has been taught at Balliol for about 50 years. These days Balliol is one of the largest Oxford colleges in terms of the number of students studying Engineering subjects, with approximately 36 undergraduate students at any one time. With four Fellows and a Lecturer (see below), the College ensures that a wide range of teaching and research interests is covered. Students’ learning and career destinations are comparably broad.

There is a flourishing undergraduate society for Balliol engineers, know as Beers. Beers helps to introduce new engineering students to the College and also organises an annual dinner.

Number of places at Balliol: 6–8.
