University of Southampton Open Days 2012
University of Southampton Open Days for prospective students take place this year on Friday 6 and Saturday 7 July.
Prospective students are able to visit Electronics and Computer Science (ECS) throughout the two days, with tours and presentations demonstrating the unique opportunities available at the University of Southampton. Visitors will also be able to meet past and current students, visit our undergraduate labs and learn about ECS students’ excellent careers prospects.
Open Day presentations will include 'Robotics and Rehabilitation', '21st Century Computing' and 'The ECS Science Community'. Visitors will be able to tour the Nano and Photonic cleanrooms, the ECS computer labs and the electronic teaching labs. Careers talks, student showcase events and drop-in sessions will also be running throughout the two days. The University of Southampton’s Open Day website provides further information as well as booking opportunities (Saturday 7 July is already fully booked).
"Visiting universities is extremely important in enabling students to find the best place for their study," says ECS Professor Alun Vaughan. "There are many factors which make a difference to the kind of educational experience that will suit a particular student and we urge prospective students to take advantage of these visit days to find out as much as they can about what we can offer them."
Electronics and Electrical Engineering at the University of Southampton is currently ranked 1st and 2nd in subject league tables (The Guardian University Guide 2013/The Times University Guide 2013), while Computer Science and IT is currently ranked 3rd and 8th in the same league tables.
