ECS Taster Course

Do you enjoy maths, technology or science?

If you love maths, technology or science then the University of Southampton’s week long summer residential taster course is for you. Our one-week residential taster course (10th – 14th July 2017) will enable you to apply your skills to computer science and electronic engineering, working in groups and investigating technology in our state-of-the-art undergraduate labs. As well as experiencing the facilities on campus, and taking part in labs and lectures, you will be living in halls and enjoying a busy programme on the University of Southampton campus.

No previous experience of Electronics, Computer Science or Programming is needed. However, if you already have good skills in these subjects you will get the chance to apply them in our high-spec labs with outstanding facilities. To enrol, you should be aged 16+ when the course begins; studying maths and one of Physics, Electronics, Computing or Further Maths at A-level (or equivalent) and have mostly A/A* grades at GCSE (or equivalent). The University of Southampton is renowned for its teaching of Electronics and Computer Science but this course is designed for everyone, whether you plan to study the subjects at university or not, whether you are planning to study else where or abroad. It provides a run and exhilarating week in which you get to improve your understanding, try out your design skills, solve some interesting problems, hang out with cool people and have lots of fun.
