Our objective as a society is to not only assist with studies but to also create a community in which like-minded individuals can create new projects, share ideas, and have fun!
Here, you’ll have the opportunity to go on industrial trips, attend guest talks, and more. Last year, we visited a number of facilities such as Airbus Portsmouth and the UKAEA Culham Science Centre. We also feature a lot of industrial guest talks from employers, as well as networking events with other societies and the IET.
These employers have shown they are particularly interested in members of our Society. It makes sense to click on their logos to visit their Company Hubs, ‘Follow’ them and apply!
If you're an employer and would like to add your company logo to this page, please contact Georgia via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
TUV SUD specialises in product testing, certifying and verifying a variety of electronic products, ranging from medical to military to commercial applications.
Members of the society got to see first-hand the tools, equipment and procedures used to carry out product testing and certification, which included anechoic chambers, environment simulation areas and safety labs.
We host regular social events for members to attend to meet other students, socialise and have fun. These have ranged from a trip to the pub to a board games night in town.
We additionally network with other STEM societies to increase our social bubble and create some multidisciplinary links between students. We have an annual social event with the IT Society, DEVSOC, Mechanical Engineering Society and more, where members can meet other students from different courses and faculties to build a strong social network.
We started a virtual pub and quiz night to replace our normal social outings during term time.
In addition, members have the opportunity to get involved in games night, playing games like League of Legends or Minecraft. These provide a great opportunity for students from all years to meet each other and socialise virtually during the current times.
In 2020, the society visited the UKAEA Culham Science Centre, home of the UK's leading fusion energy reactors. Members received a talk on the history of fusion energy and current innovations. We were then taken on a tour of the control rooms, test areas and reactor facilities used to experiment and test new technologies and theory.
We hosted several lab workshops last year (before Covid) for the first years to support their learning in the classroom. We collaborated with the university and some of our lectures to deliver the workshop content, which focused on reinforcing skills and knowledge attained in class and introducing students to more complex circuits such as filters and operational amplifiers.
