Degree Overview

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.

Important
  • If you do not meet our academic grade requirements for your chosen course, we can offer you an alternative route to begin your studies. Our international incorporated degrees will develop your subject knowledge, academic English and university level study skills.

Why Study this Degree

Engineering employers in renewable industries look for well qualified mechanical engineers with added expertise in the renewables area.

You could work in mainstream commercial activities such as wind turbines and solar cells, biomass, and energy conservation.

On top of your knowledge of the science and technology of energy, you will also be able to work confidently in any career in which a sound ability in mathematics, computing, or administrative organisation is required.

Your Pathways

International Stage One

The IS1 is the first year of a four year International Incorporated Bachelors. And its designed to strengthen your English language abilities and introduce core concepts and knowledge required at university study level.  Once you have successfully completed your studies you will continue the remaining stages of your degree directly with the University of your choice.
