Mechanical Engineering with Renewables mixes traditional core engineering with emerging technologies in the alternative energy field. Renewable energy involves every aspect of the study of matter and energy.
You’ll gain a range of technical, creative, and management skills relevant to the renewable energy industry. You’ll have the opportunity to get involved in practical and industry-led projects and use what you have learned to present solutions to industry experts.
In your final year, you’ll undertake a research project related to renewables. Previous projects have included:
carbon footprints for companies and buildings
battery technology for transport use
integration of large scale wind power
We are the only Scottish university taking part in the CMS Collaboration, a major experiment at the Large Hadron Collider CERN. Our students have had the opportunity to visit the site during their studies.
