Your few years at University are the most precious and privileged opportunity that you'll probably ever get. Use every moment of your time there to discover yourself and your potential.
I am really enjoying fabricating nanoscale devices in the cleanrooms and I have been networking with researchers from well-known facilities.
Every day of research is a world-first, I am witnessing confidential engineering work on a daily basis.
The biggest strength of my course is that it allows me the freedom to run my project myself but with expert guidance. I get to bounce ideas around a room full of specialist academics, which is fantastic and I feel so well supported.
The University is also very strong at helping graduates find jobs. ECS holds an annual careers fair that attracts lots of famous companies.
We have one of the premier cleanrooms in Europe, which enables me to carry out cutting-edge experiments and generate novel results. We also have world-leading researchers and academics to guide the way for students and an international reputation.

I really enjoy the challenge of working at the frontier of human knowledge.
My supervisors both on my BEng and my PhD were excellent in their fields and this raises the expectations from their students. If you are choosing Computer Science I wouldn’t know a better place to study than Southampton.
I have thoroughly enjoyed studying, researching and working here and would encourage other potential students to consider the University. A degree from Southampton is a great start to a career.

The degree I obtained from the University of Southampton has always been a great help for me in my roles.
A great highlight of my time so far has been going to Japan for the International Electric Propulsion Conference and presenting my research to an international audience.
I chose to do my PhD at ECS because I had a positive experience of the school during my MSc and enjoyed being part of it.
