ECS celebrates students’ achievements at Graduation
Over 200 students will attend Graduation ceremonies this week to receive University of Southampton degrees gained in the School of Electronics and Computer Science.
The students will graduate at two ceremonies to be held on Friday 16 July: at 9.30 am for undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in Computer Science, Software Engineering and Information Technology in Organisations; and at 4.45 pm for degrees in Electronic Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Electromechanical Engineering. The ceremonies will be followed at 10.30 am and 5.45 pm by Graduation Receptions for graduates and their guests, to be held in the University's Reception Marquee (morning ceremony), which is situated in front of the Students' Union; and in the Garden Court (afternoon ceremony).
Professor Harvey Rutt, Head of School, will tell graduates: "All of us who know ECS know that it is a unique place and that it is the members of our community who make it so. For the last three or four years you have been an integral part of that community as much as any of the researchers and teachers whose work contributes to the School’s international reputation."
The majority of students graduating from ECS have already found jobs, despite the difficult economic conditions. Excellent employability figures for the School's graduates were a contributing factor in the School's outstanding league table results this year, and with many companies already booking for the ECS Careers Fair in February 2011, prospects for future graduates also look excellent.
Congratulations to all ECS students graduating this week!
