The University of Southampton


Many companies require specialist facilities or technical expertise to maintain their leading edge capability, develop new technologies, or identify the root cause of a specific problem. We offer general consultancy ranging from a single day with a specialist academic to a variety of well-established, specialist enterprise units offering dedicated and professional teams solely deployed to work on longer-term projects with external organisations. Projects are undertaken to agreed specifications, costs and timescales. We have standard contracts that can be flexed to suit your needs.

The University of Southampton is a major driver of innovation with the exploitation of world leading research and development undertaken by our academics and students. We are world leaders in the aerospace and defence sector, with research strengths in structures, power-plants, materials, fluid dynamics, electronics, electro-optics, cyber-systems, as well as, supply chains and logistics. Our consultancy projects are conducted across the entire range of companies from multi-national blue chip companies through to SMEs and micro companies. This portfolio is worth £30M annually to the University and projects with SMEs alone account for £10M.

Our academics have close links with each other and with other university-based consultancy groups allowing interdisciplinary projects to be tackled head-on, with bespoke teams of experts and specialist research and testing facilities assembled to meet
your particular needs.
