Graduation 2011 - Over 200 ECS students will receive degrees
Over 200 students will attend Graduation ceremonies on Monday 25 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 on Monday 25 July: at 9.30 am for undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in Electronic Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Electromechanical Engineering; and at 12.00 noon for degrees in Computer Science, Software Engineering and Information Technology in Organisations. The ceremonies will be followed at around 10.30 am and 1 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 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 our international reputation."
The majority of students graduating from ECS have already found jobs, despite the difficult economic conditions. Excellent employability figures for ECS graduates were a contributing factor in the School's outstanding league table results this year (Electronics and Electrical Engineering is ranked 1st and 3nd in the UK in recent league tables (The Guardian and The Times May/June 2010) and Computer Science and IT is ranked 5th and 8th), and with many companies already booking for the ECS Careers Fair on 7 February 2011, prospects for future graduates also look excellent.
Congratulations to all ECS students graduating this week!
