The UKESF welcomes Swansea University
Swansea University is the 23rd leading academic institution to partner with the UK Electronics Skills Foundation, joining 22 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.
“Swansea University celebrates its centenary in 2020 and the founding ethos of ‘established by industry to work in partnership with industry’ is a key principle that we have followed ever since. As a university, we are very proud of our record of preparing our graduates for careers in industry and we are delighted to join the UKESF, which will further extend these valuable opportunities. The collaboration with a prestigious body like the UKESF will really help us to further develop links with industry and schools to the benefit of the entire Electronics sector.”
“There is a thriving Electronics sector in Wales and so it is great to have Swansea join the UKESF as our 23rd partner university. Their new facilities at the Bay Campus are first class and they have created some exciting programmes for students.”
Swansea University is internationally renowned for research into power electronics, telecommunications, nanotechnology and biometrics, which feeds back into their Electrical Engineering degree courses to keep them up-to-date and relevant to industry. The Electronic Systems Design Centre (ESDC) is known for its ground-breaking research into Power IC technology and is a world-leader in semiconductor device modelling, FEM and compact modelling.
