Royal Holloway joins the UKESF

Royal Holloway, University of London, is the 21st leading academic institution to partner with the UK Electronics Skills Foundation, joining 20 other universities working with the UKESF and meaning that, as the scholarship programme expands, industry sponsors will be able to connect with even more high quality students.

“It’s great to have Royal Holloway join the UKESF. Theirs is a new Electronic Engineering department focusing on creativity, and I look forward to working with them.”

Stew Edmondson, CEO, UKESF

Royal Holloway’s Department of Electronic Engineering welcomed its first undergraduates in September 2017, and as of September 2018 is located in a new £22m state-of-the-art science building named after pioneering engineer Beatrice Shilling OBE, whose ingenuity provided a vital modification to British fighter planes in the early stages of the Second World War. The department is split over three floors, each with a different function, allowing project-led activities their own space separate from other forms of teaching, research and staff offices.

“It is a real pleasure for Royal Holloway’s Electronic Engineering department to become a partner with the UKESF, bringing fantastic career benefits and valuable networking opportunities for our students. This will help to expand our horizons as we prepare new generations of engineers steeped in the creative ingenious processes of designing and implementing new solutions to benefit the future of humankind.”

Professor David Howard, Head of Electronic Engineering
