ECM was at Southampton University as part of the ECS Engineering and Technology Careers Fair on 13th February 2020. Whilst there, we held our bespoke competition which garnered a lot of interest from those attending the event.

This year, we held our technology and science based “Anagram” competition – asking people to solve the puzzles. We were pleased it was engaging and certainly had people talking about it as well as allowing people to open up and show off their knowledge. Answers ranged from Digital Electronics to Machine Learning and Synthetic Biology.

Thank you to everyone we met with and who entered the competition. The winners of the prize draw are listed below – get in touch if that’s you, or get in touch with them if you know them!
