Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Surrey ranks number one in the 2016 National Student Survey

Electrical and Electronic Engineering degrees have receive 100 per cent student satisfaction rating in final-year student survey.

The University of Surrey has been ranked number one in the Electronic and Electrical Engineering category of the National Student Survey (NSS) 2016 - rising nine places in just one year.

Dr David Carey, Head of the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering for teaching, said: “I am delighted that the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering has achieved a 100 per cent overall satisfaction in this year’s National Student Survey.

"It is particularly welcome to see that the students recognised the quality of the education and support for their studies that our staff provide. Surrey recruits excellent and highly motivated students and during their time with us our high-quality teaching allows them to perform to the highest possible levels."

The NSS is an annual survey that gives students the opportunity to have their say about their university learning experience. Feedback is given on teaching, assessment and feedback, academic support, organisation and management, learning resources and personal development.

During my four years at Surrey, I found the culture of encouraging innovation amongst students to be really strong. The academic staff and the teaching environment at Surrey introduced me to new ways of thinking. They really expanded my curiosity about my subject, helping me to explore different areas of engineering and decide which direction to take.
