World Class Facilities

At Southampton, you will have the opportunity to develop original thinking, push boundaries and create solutions to global challenges using facilities that are as advanced as our thinking.

Ever since we pioneered research that laid the foundations for the creation of the Web, we have been developing an understanding of computer sciences. Our Web Science Institute is where students and researchers come to investigate how the Web will continue to change the world.

We are pushing the boundaries of performance sport. Using a combination of our large-scale facilities, including wind tunnels and towing tanks, our engineering research is helping elite athletes gain that vital competitive advantage.

We have invested £8m in our undergraduate teaching and project laboratories for electrical engineering, together with extensive computing facilities. Our cleanroom is the largest multidisciplinary cleanroom of its type in the UK, offering world-class facilities to our undergraduate students.

The Engineering, Design and Manufacturing Centre (EDMC) is a professional engineering workshop, used by students and researchers. Its extensive facilities include 3D printers, CNC equipment, CAD/CAM software and a training workshop.
