Summary

In the modern world of vehicle design and manufacture, companies require engineers who are highly qualified and possess specialised skills. If you have an interest in road vehicles and a mechanical or automotive background, this course could provide you with technical and managerial skills and expertise that are highly sought after by the automotive industry.

This highly focused course has been developed in consultation with our current impressive network of industry partners, including Jaguar Land Rover (industry partners are subject to change). It also draws on the industrial experience of academics and research activity covering the major specialisms, such as aerodynamics, propulsion systems, vehicle safety, vehicle dynamics and connected vehicles.

We aim to equip you with the know-how to design and test vehicles that are more fuel efficient, refined and safe, by studying the design, performance and operation of automotive powertrains and vehicle systems, examining individual components and entire vehicles. This could lead to a career as an automotive engineering specialist in a wide range of engineering, manufacturing, and service organisations.
