Just a reminder that this session will close in approximately 15 minutes at 7pm BST. Any last minute questions are welcomed.
What do our graduates do?
I’m Tim Jackson, the admissions tutor for Electronic, Electrical and Computer Engineering. We often get asked about what students can do with a degree in our subject. We have some interviews with former students here:
and some graduate profiles here:
You’ll see our students go into many different industrial and commercial sectors. Employers value both the technical skills and the analytical, process-related skills that students develop during their courses and their project work.
Sorry to bother you, but can you give me examples of the companies that students will work in during the year in industry, or the companies former students worked at. Thank you
It’s no trouble at all – it’s what we’re here for!
Our students work in range of organisations in the industry, for both their Year in Industry experience and once they’ve graduated; recent companies include Arup, IBM, Jaguar Land Rover, GlaxoSmithKline, EON, Thales, Network Rail, National Grid, and CBG Consultants . Some students go onto work as graduates in the company that they’ve been placed with in their industrial year, whilst others choose to work somewhere new.
You can learn about some of our graduates’ destinations from these links on our Department webpage:
may i know, are the accommodation fees seperated from the tuition fees?
I’m Tim Jackson, the admissions tutor for the Department of Electronic, Electrical and Systems Engineering. The short answer is yes, the accommodation fees and tuition fees are separate. This means you could choose to stay in your own choice of private accommodation, or with family or friends, if that works best for you.
You can find all the details of our student accommodation, including how to apply, how much it costs, how to pay here: http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/study/accommodation/index.aspx. You will also find links to virtual tours of some of the accommodation options.
Student fees are dealt with separately. If you receive a First Class scholarship or an Excellence or Achievement scholarship for example, these are normally awarded as a discount from your fees. The scholarships are detailed on our School web pages here: http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/schools/engineering/eese/undergraduate/scholarships.aspx
