28 June 2012Last month the University ran the latest in a series of Open Days. These events provide young people with an opportunity to talk with staff and students. Visitors were able to explore the campus and gain valuable insights into life as an undergraduate student.
Attendees gained a better understanding of our electrical and electronic, electronic and communications and computer science and electronics degree programmes. Many visitors were pleasantly surprised to learn about our extensive range of scholarships. Through the E3 Academy and the UK Electronic Skills Foundation electrical and electronic engineering students enjoy the widest range of high-value scholarship and intern programmes.
Many of our students are sponsored by traditional companies such as EDF Energy, Cisco, Toshiba and Siemens. However, in recent years this has expanded to cover broader companies such as Boeing (Aerospace) and Jaguar Landrover (Automotive).
The Department ran a number of interactive demonstrations. These included the LED wands featured on BBC’s Bang Goes the Theory, a new type of breast cancer scanner, a self-driving Scalextric car and an interactive ‘green’ driving simulator.
