We rank second for overall satisfaction in Electronic and Electrical Engineering

Students in Electronic and Electrical Engineering (EEE) at the University of Southampton have demonstrated excellent satisfaction levels in the National Student Survey 2017 (NSS).

Data published from the highly-esteemed assessment ranks Southampton second for overall satisfaction in EEE out of all UK Higher Education Institutes.

The NSS 2017 found that 99% of EEE students were satisfied or very satisfied with the overall quality of their course. These approval levels even peaked at 100% among MEng Electronic Engineering students.

The strong NSS performance has been welcomed by senior leaders from the department.

Professor Paul Lewin, Head of ECS, says: “This is further confirmation that in ECS our staff provide high quality research-led education that is both intellectually challenging and more than meeting the expectations of our students. I would like to personally thank all ECS staff who have contributed to our undergraduate programmes over the last year; their continued hard work and dedication are largely responsible for this result.”

The National Student Survey has been conducted annually since 2005 by HEFCE and IpsosMori and asks final year undergraduates for feedback on their universities and courses. This year has seen substantial changes to the NSS, including the addition of three new sections that focus on the Student Voice, Learning Community and Learning Opportunities.

In Electronic and Electrical Engineering, student responses ranked the subject second for teaching out of all UK Higher Education Institutes. 100% of MEng Electronic Engineering students were satisfied or very satisfied with the teaching of their course and agreed that staff are good at explaining things, that staff have made the subject interesting and that the course is intellectually stimulating and challenged them to achieve their best work. Electronic and Electrical Engineering students also reported that they were satisfied or very satisfied with the learning resources on their course in 93% of responses.

Professor Bashir Al-Hashimi, Dean of Physical Sciences and Engineering, says: “I’m delighted with these results which evidence that our faculty is providing the highest quality student experience and learning. We have plans to build further on this success to the benefit of our students and staff.”
