About the wind tunnels

The University of Southampton wind tunnels have a rich history and are able to carry out a wide variety of testing and have experience in many different sectors.


The wind tunnels can offer consultant engineers to help achieve your goals and also have links with several internal engineering consultancy firms for more specific problems.

In engineering, a good understanding of physical laws and how they can be applied is vital. Southampton’s Aeronautics and Astronautics course gave me an excellent basis for establishing this blend in a manner that has stood me in good stead throughout my career.
