Overview

Sustainable energy supply represents one of the key challenges to engineering today. This programme provides you with an overview of modern energy technologies including renewable energy sources, fuel cells, low carbon energy and energy economics.

The first two years of this degree are common with the MEng Mechanical Engineering (H301), followed by specialisation in years three and four through a range of subject themes. Modules include: Introduction to energy systems, resources and usage, Advanced electrical systems, Ocean and wind energy, Fuel cells, Photovoltaic devices and systems, Heat transfer, Automotive propulsion, Advanced management, Engineering design and Thermofluids engineering for low carbon energy. In the third and fourth years you will participate in individual, group, and multidisciplinary projects.

Programme structure

Years 1 and 2 are compulsory for all Mechanical Engineering themes and provide sound preparation for the final part of the degree.

In Year 3, you will have the opportunity to specialise taking modules designed for your theme. You will also undertake an individual project that usually takes the form of a design or research exercise, and involves the production of a formal report.

In Year 4, MEng students participate in a Group Design Project (GDP). These projects are often linked to current research activities or topics that have practical relevance to industry and represent a significant part of your Mechanical Engineering masters studies.

Career opportunities

Graduates of Mechanical Engineering programme are in high demand among employers from the private and public sector, and have entered careers including: graduate mechanical engineer, Royal Naval officer, associate (chartered accountant), helicopter engineer, applications engineer, consultant, graduate design engineer, research consultant, associate (management consultant), and development engineer.

If you are considering a career in the armed forces, Southampton is one of the universities designated for the Defence Technical Undergraduate Scheme, which provides sponsored places to students on specific courses, and has active Army, Navy and Air Force units.

Among the organisations employing Mechanical Engineering graduates are: Jaguar, WS Atkins, AWE, IAC Aviation, GE Aviation, Johnson Matthey, Lloyds TSB, PricewaterhouseCoopers, QinetiQ, Royal Navy, Dysons, BAE Systems, BP, Dstl, Fluor Daniel, Schlumberger.
