Students tell it like it is
The latest newsletter from ECS provides a perspective on a year in the life of the School, drawn from the blogs written by undergraduate students.
Entitled When Everything Connects (pdf), the newsletter highlights the major event of the University year, starting with the JumpStart induction week in October, running through intensive coursework in Semester 1, exams, house-hunting, more exams!, Finals, Graduation, and summer study before the year begins again.
The ECS undergraduate bloggers are a diverse group, covering all the main subject streams: Computer Science, Electromechanical Engineering and Electronics, and all the different year groups. Chris Jensen joined the School this year from Norway, Norhidayah Azman is from Malaysia, and Ian Gilham took the Foundation Year before entering a course in Computer Science.
Life isn't all plain sailing and some of the accounts written by the students demonstrate the extent of support which students in the School are able to access as they go through an intensive and often challenging degree course.
But in the end, hopefully everything does connect, and as Emma Burton writes: 'ECS ... is certainly a force to be reckoned with!'
