ECS announces new scholarships for Malaysian students
Electronics and Computer Science (ECS) is celebrating the launch of its Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) degree at the University’s Malaysia Campus with the announcement of new scholarships.
Ten high performing first-year students who enrol on the new MEng EEE programme this autumn will be offered a 25 per cent reduction on their fees.
The 2+2 degree programme will start this autumn at the University's Malaysia Campus, at EduCity@iskandar, in South Johor, and has recently received full approval from the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA). It combines ECS academics’ long experience in teaching excellent electrical engineering and electronic engineering programmes into a unifying MEng degree in EEE. The new students will spend their first two years at the Malaysia Campus before transferring to Southampton, UK, for the final two years.
The University is recognised as world-leading for Electronics and Computer Science and has achieved fantastic rankings in each of the most recent league tables. It has been ranked as number one in the UK for the fourth year in a row for Electrical and Electronic Engineering according to The Guardian University Guide.
The EEE degree joins Southampton’s undergraduate MEng in Mechanical Engineering, which enrolled its first students in 2012. The University is proud to offer these two flagship programmes through its Malaysia Campus.
The newly-announced EEE scholarships are in addition to the existing high-achievement scholarships (open to new students joining the University's EEE and Mechanical Engineering programmes at its Malaysia campus). All applicants to the EEE degree will be automatically considered for the scholarships and will be required to attend an interview.
Professor Neil White, Head of Electronics and Computer Science at the University, says: “The University of Southampton offers a unique opportunity for students in Malaysia and we are pleased to offer these new scholarships, which increases the number of scholarships available to EEE students.”
