Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Southampton rises to fourth in Complete University Guide
The University of Southampton has been ranked fourth in the UK for Electrical and Electronic Engineering in subject rankings of the Complete University Guide 2021.
The subject has risen three places in the latest Guide and is one of 15 Southampton subject areas placed within the top 10 nationally. Computer Science at Southampton also jumped three places to now be ranked 11th in the UK.
Southampton has a long and successful history in Electrical and Electronic Engineering teaching and research. There is a massive skills shortage in both disciplines and graduates are actively sought after by employers.
Professor Paul Lewin, Head of Electronic and Computer Science (ECS), says: "The position of ECS in the Complete University Guide 2021 for both its Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Computer Science courses is a clear reflection of the quality of our staff and their teaching, our outstanding facilities and the demand employers have for our graduates."
The University is placed 17th overall out of 130 universities listed in the Guides annual league table - a rise of three places making it the highest climber of any university within the top 20 this year.
University of Southampton President and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Mark E Smith, says: "With all the uncertainty around at the moment it is really pleasing to see this very positive move in the latest Complete University Guide rankings, with the University of Southampton back inside the top 20 overall which very much reflects our emphasis on quality, be it teaching or research. It confirms that students receive a very high quality education here.
"As a nationally-relevant, world-leading university, Southampton will continue to press forward thanks to the dedication of our staff and students who I want to thank for keeping us amongst the top echelons of UK universities."
