ECS Postgraduate Open Day a success
Electronics and Computer Science (ECS) held a successful first MSc Open Day, which attracted a cross section of overseas students based in UK universities, as well as students from the EU and UK.
The Open Day provided an opportunity for students interested in studying postgraduate taught courses to explore the campus and see the excellent facilities on offer at the University of Southampton. They could discover more about the range and varieties of one year postgraduate Master of Science courses provided by ECS, learn about what studying an MSc involves and find out about developing a career. Current MSc students were also on hand to talk about their experiences and there were opportunities to chat to and ask questions of our world-leading academics at the cutting edge of their disciplines.
The day also included tours of some of ECS’s outstanding facilities including the high voltage electrical labs, computing suites, award-winning clean rooms and electronic labs, as well as looking at the accommodation available for postgraduate students.
Feedback from students on the day was overwhelmingly positive, and they were particularly appreciative of the opportunity to talk informally with academics and current MSc students.
Head of ECS Professor Neil White said: “Deciding to study for an MSc is a big step. By coming to our Open Day potential students could hear all about our programmes, talk to current students and get the information they need to make the right decision.”
