Our courses provide you with the fundamentals of engineering, alongside design modules throughout your degree, which enable you to apply your knowledge and develop the skills you need to become a successful engineer.
This course will provide you with specialist expertise in the integration of electrical and mechanical systems. You will have the opportunity to study and practise mechanical, electrical, and control engineering to develop smarter machines ranging from autonomous robots to self-driving cars.
The Industrial Placement Year is an additional year-long module that allows you to apply for a placement with an engineering-based organisation. The Industrial Placement Year will be taken between your second and third years, extending your degree to five years. During your year-long placement, you will fulfil the role of a trainee engineer on a full-time basis.
We offer our students a dynamic learning environment; your course will include a combination of lectures, laboratory classes, tutorials, private study, and individual and group projects.
The first year provides a background in engineering science, emphasising mechanical engineering aspects. The second year covers the main mechanical engineering subjects with modules tailored to the mechanical engineering discipline. In the third year the course includes an individual project and specialist modules. In the fourth year the course includes a Group Design Project. In addition to the modules below, students can choose further module options to be undertaken between Semester 1 and Semester 2. The Industrial Placement Year is an additional year-long module, that will be taken between your second and third years, extending your degree to five years. Core and compulsory modules: Year 1: Mathematics for Engineering and the Environment, Electrical and Electronic Systems, ThermoFluids, Design and Computing, Mechanical Systems Analysis, Mechanics, Structures and Materials. Year 2: Systems Design and Computing, Electronics, Drives and Control, Engineering Management and Law, Mathematics for Engineering and the Environment Part II, Thermodynamics, Mechanics, Machines and Vibration, Fluid Mechanics, Materials and Structures. Year 3: Individual Project, Manufacturing and Materials, Engineering Design with Management, Control and Instrumentation. Year 4: Group Design Project, Advanced Sensors and Condition Monitoring, Automotive Propulsion, Advanced Electrical Systems, Advanced Management.
Assessment is conducted through a combination of written examinations and assessed coursework in the form of problem solving exercises, laboratory reports, design exercises, essays, and individual and group projects. Experimental, research and design skills are assessed through laboratory reports, coursework exercises and oral presentations.

The University of Southampton is a fantastic university which undertakes world-class research and amazing teaching. I have experienced first-hand the enthusiasm and passion of my lecturers and seminar tutors. The campus is particularly brilliant due to the large number of facilities based directly on campus such as the GP, Costa, Banking etc. In addition, the campus is incredibly green and is filled with nature and animals. The pastoral care is also very good and so it is easy to feel welcome at this institution.
