About this course

We've changed some parts of this course for the 2020 to 2021 academic year due to coronavirus (COVID-19). These changes may affect how we'll teach you and which modules you'll take.

The programme specification addendum (PDF, 1,328 KB) has all the latest details.

Sustainable energy supply is one of the greatest challenges we face today. At Southampton, you'll learn to focus your engineering skills into cutting-edge technologies, such as wind turbines, solar cells and batteries. You'll study core mechanical engineering topics and explore how we store, use and distribute energy. You'll graduate with vital skills for environmental engineering and beyond.

Sustainable energy is a fascinating and growing area. This 4-year integrated master's in mechanical engineering focuses on the latest in energy technology, systems and processes, such as:

  • fuel cells

  • photovoltaics

  • biomass systems

  • tidal energy

  • wind turbines

This degree provides the core topics you'll need to master mechanical engineering. It then gives you the advanced skills to design and test sustainable-energy technologies.

As part of this course you can:

  • examine the economics behind energy technology investments

  • develop your management skills

  • take a work placement to boost your academic performance and prepare for your career

  • use our design workshops and studios

  • showcase your work in our annual Engineering Design Show

  • go on site visits to experience engineering in practice

You can take this course with an additional, year-long, paid placement. Apply with UCAS code H3J7 for the Industrial Placement Year option.

We're a designated university for the Defence Technical Undergraduate Scheme (DTUS).

This course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) as meeting the academic requirement, in full, for Chartered Engineer registration.
