Leading technology companies attending ECS Careers Fair

Published: 8 January 2009

Over 30 leading graduate recruiters will be attending the ECS Engineering and Technology Careers Fair on Wednesday 11 February.

Despite the economic downturn, competition among the country's leading technology companies to recruit highly skilled graduates is still hot, and Southampton students have a very strong reputation for the breadth and depth of their knowledge of different technologies, as well as for the strong mix of practical and theoretical understanding gained in their degree programmes.

The ECS Engineering and Technology Careers Fair was held for the first time in 2008, in response to demand for our students from business and industry. Over 1000 students attended last year's event, and so this year's Fair, on Wednesday 11 February, is already hotly anticipated.

The event takes place in the Garden Court, Students' Union, on the Highfield Campus, and is open to all students in the University, with a particular emphasis on engineering and science degrees. As well as graduate recruitment opportunities, the companies will also be offering summer internships and industrial placements. The company representatives will be available at their exhibition stands throughout the day, and there is also a special programme of presentations.

Companies attending include: aap3, Accenture, BAE Systems, Bloomberg, CapGemini, Corefiling, Detica, Dstl, Ericsson, Enterprise Recruitment, Factset, Fidessa, Graduate Jobs South, GRC Ltd, IBM, Imagination Technologies, JP Morgan, MatchTech, MBDA, Mendeley, NATS, Nokia, NDS, Network Rail, Parkair Systems, PPD, Qualcomm, Roke Manor Research, Schlumberger, Selex Galileo, Siemens, and STR.
