We study the origin of neutrino mass from SO(10) arising from M Theory compactified on a G2-manifold. This is linked to the problem of the breaking of the extra U(1) gauge group, in the SU(5) × U(1) subgroup of SO(10), which we show can achieved via a (generalised) Kolda-Martin mechanism. The resulting neutrino masses arise from a combination of the seesaw mechanism and induced R-parity breaking contributions. The rather complicated neutrino mass matrix is analysed for one neutrino family and it is shown how phenomenologically acceptable neutrino masses can emerge.
