LONDON Students starting the MSc and EngD programmes at the Institute for System Level Integration (iSLI) in Livingston have been made welcome at an event supported by Epson Europe Electronics GmbH, West Lothian Council, Scottish Development International and Fresh Talent.
The MSc programme in system level integration, as well as being a standalone postgraduate degree, also acts as an academic precursor the commercially focussed EngD research degree. The recent combined intake of iSLI students has increased by 13.5 percent since last year with 38 percent of students from the U.K., 7 percent from the wider EU and the remaining from the rest of the world, predominantly India and China.
Students had the opportunity to meet fellow students and talk to Dr. David Crawford, manager of Epson Europe Electronics GmbH, an industry sponsor of EngD students.
The students also had the opportunity to meet iSLI graduates and discuss the Institute from a student’s perspective. The event was also attended by representatives A'amir Taqvi and Jim Henderson from West Lothian Council, David Hartley from Scottish Development International and Steven Szymoszowskyj from Fresh Talent.
