The University of Southampton

Electronics and Computer Science (ECS) has a worldwide reputation for our education, research and enterprise. Our researchers are working at the leading edge of technological development and our degree programmes are designed to ensure that our graduates are fully prepared for research or employment in the world’s leading companies and organisations.

Because we combine electronics, computer science, and electrical engineering, you will experience a range of specialisation in your degree programme, which enables greater penetration of the disciplines – this is one of the reasons why our graduates are in demand.

Our world-leading research inspires our education and teaching  and drives our enterprise agenda. You will be taught by academics at the forefront of their fields, whose research inspires their teaching and in the later stages of your degree programme, you will have the opportunity to work on a leading-edge project as part of a research team.

This inherently strong research culture is grounded in engineering and mathematical principles. Our enduring commitment to multidisciplinarity, our openness to explore newly emergent technologies and capabilities, our constant drive to attract the best people, and our longstanding focus on innovation and enterprise, make ECS an exciting environment to be part of.

At Southampton, Electronics and Computer Science are uniquely combined, which means they can draw on features from both areas. It puts a different spin on the whole thing which I was really impressed by. And the facilities are incredible – they surpass anything I have seen elsewhere!
