4 or 3 years
Dundee City Campus

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.
