Our Outreach programmes promote electrical and electronic engineering to the wider community including school children, teachers and the general public. Together with our industrial partners we show the social and industrial relevance of the subject.
Outreach events convey the excitement of electrical and electronic engineering in core areas such as Healthcare, Transport, Energy and Communications. Job opportunities are currently excellent for graduating electrical and electronic engineering students. UK industry is crying out for high quality engineers and a range of generous sponsorship packages are available to Bristol students.
Electrical and electronic engineering places you directly at the cutting edge of new technology, whether that’s an eco-friendly electric car to get you to work, a quantum photonic cryptography system to keep your credit card PIN numbers safe or the latest in mobile communications technology.
Electrical and electronic engineers are at the very forefront of the kind of technological advances that are enabling a healthier, more connected and more sustainable future.
FutureTech is an annual Outreach event that aims to give prospective students an exciting insight into how our discipline is improving the way we do things, offering a broader understanding of the science behind the technology and how it can be applied to benefit society.
Through funding from the Widening Participation Office, our current undergraduate students are visiting schools across the country to explain what life is like at University and what they do as part of their electrical and electronic engineering degree.
If you are interested in having a student visit your school, or would like to talk further about this activity, please contact us.
