ECS to Host UK-ESF Summer School 2014

13th May 2013

In July 2014, ECS at the University of Southampton will be hosting the UK-Electronics Skills Foundation's (UK-ESF) annual summer school. The course will be delivered in partnership HeadStart and with contributions from the UK-ESF's University Partners. As the University of Southampton's representative/coordinator for the UKESF, I am responsible for planning and running this exciting course, supported by our excellent ECS Lab Manager and Outreach coordinator. Watch this space!

About the course: This course will give attendees the opportunity to explore a wide range of topics within electronic engineering, and provide a flavour of the academic side of undergraduate life through lectures and hands-on challenges on subjects such as communications, analogue and digital electronics, control systems, microelectronics, nanotechnology and bioelectronics. Students will also live as students in a hall of residence and will have time for a mix of independent and organised social activities in addition to the academic programme. The course is part-sponsored by industry, with support provided by ARM, Broadcom Foundation, CSR, Dialog Semiconductor, Imagination Technologies, Publitek and Jaguar Land Rover. They will be complementing the academic programme with a team project for the week and with some of their graduate engineers talking about some of the exciting and innovative work that they do. This course will show attendees how stimulating and varied electronic engineering can be as a career and the important role it plays in the technological advances valued by society.
