About this course

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.
