Over 200 students graduate with degrees from ECS
Over 200 students will attend Graduation ceremonies on Thursday 19 July to receive University of Southampton degrees gained in ECS-Electronics and Computer Science.
The students will graduate at two ceremonies to be held in the Turner Sims Concert Hall: at 9.30 am for undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in Electronic Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Electromechanical Engineering; and at 4.45 pm for degrees in Computer Science, Software Engineering and Information Technology in Organisations. The ceremonies will be followed at around 11 am and 6 pm by Graduation Receptions for graduates and their guests, to be held in the University's Reception Marquee, which is situated in front of the Students' Union.
Professor Neil White, Head of ECS, will welcome the new graduates to the community of ECS Alumni, and will say: "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 our international reputation." Graduates can keep in touch with ECS by joining the LinkedIn group 'ECS Alumni, University of Southampton' and though the University of Southampton alumni database.
The majority of students graduating from ECS have already found excellent graduate jobs in the technology industry. Impressive employability figures for ECS graduates were a strong contributing factor in ECS's outstanding league table results this year (Electronics and Electrical Engineering is ranked 1st and 2nd in the UK in recent league tables (The Guardian and The Times May/June 2010) and Computer Science and IT is ranked 3th and 7th), and with many companies already booking for the next ECS Careers Fair on 12 February 2013, prospects for future graduates also look excellent.
Many congratulations to all new ECS graduates!
