Flight Simulator (UK Campus)
The Southampton flight simulator is unique in the UK, developed by students for students. Originally funded by BAE Systems, it is a state-of-the-art facility that uses commodity-off-the-shelf technology (COTS). Many third- and fourth-year group projects have been involved in developing the hardware and software for the simulator over a decade. We collaborate closely with the Microsoft Flight Simulator team and have been part of their test and development programme for many years.

Boldrewood Innovation Campus
Our £140m Boldrewood Innovation Campus is a purpose-built environment with state-of-the-art facilities for our engineering education, research and enterprise.  The campus is home to the University’s Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences , and is located a five minute walk away from the main Highfield Campus. Combining the world-class expertise of the University of Southampton and Lloyd’s Register, the campus is the UK’s largest university-business partnership.

Undergraduate Laboratories - Electronics and Computer Science
In 2015 £4m has been invested to refurbish and re-equip the undergraduate lab facilities for computing and for electrical and electronic engineering.

ECS Cleanroom facilities

Our £100m Cleanroom Complex is home to the best set of nanoelectronics and photonics fabrication capabilities in the UK.

The Tony Davies High Voltage Laboratory
The Tony Davies High Voltage Laboratory is one of only two laboratories in the UK that provide the high-level testing and research facilities required by the UK electricity supply companies. With a range of specialised equipment, some capable of generating one million volts, the High Voltage Laboratory provides exciting opportunities for the study of electrical engineering.
