The University holds two open day events, which are usually held in June and September. We've put together a Prezi presentation based on our last open day. This covers a few of the demonstrations and posters we displayed. It also includes a short presentation on why to study electrical and electronic enigneering!
For those who can't make one of our open days, we have been running short informal tours of the University's main precinct area over the summer months.
Whenever possible we will do our very best to accommodate ad-hoc visits to the department, it is important you contact email@example.com to organise an appropriate time to visit. All our academic staff are also active researchers, so we cannot guarantee a chance to meet a member of staff unless an appointment has been made prior to your arrival.
