Southampton tops Guardian table for Electronics/Electrical Engineering
The School of Electronics and Computer Science is placed top in the UK for Electronics and Electrical Engineering and 5th for Computer Science and IT in this year’s Guardian University League Tables 2011 published today (Tuesday 8 June).
Professor Alun Vaughan, Deputy Head of School (Education), commented: "We are very pleased to see another set of excellent results for the School of Electronics and Computer Science. They reflect our strong commitment to creating a very high-quality student experience within the context of world-class research activity.
"Our students are being trained to develop future technologies and they are very much in demand by employers for the breadth of their technical understanding, and also because the unique qualities of the ECS programmes ensure that our students will be able to maximize their potential."
The Guardian’s league table is constructed in a slightly different way from tables published by the other newspapers, which showed Southampton 2nd for Electronics and Electrical Engineering and 4th/5th for Computer Science, but overall the results are a huge vote of confidence for students on our courses and for students who will be joining us in October. Graduate prospects for ECS students are ranked particularly highly in the league tables.
University of Southampton Open Days take place this year on Saturday 3 July and Wednesday 8 and Thursday 9 September. ECS will be running a programme of talks, tours, presentations, and demonstrations throughout the day, which also includes talks about all aspects of University life, including finance, accommodation. The University's Open Day web site is now open for bookings for activities in ECS and throughout the University. Book now.
