Course summary

The automotive industry is a hugely rewarding sector to get into, if you’re looking to become a leader in a thriving, global industry, working at the forefront of engineering developments, this integrated Master’s course could be the ideal start. With industry focus now progressing to more environmentally friendly vehicles, for example, battery, electric, hybrid and fuel cell vehicles, and increasing demand for new technologies, products and materials, you could lead projects that will change the world we live in, there are plenty of career paths you could chose to take within this STEM subject, whilst planning for your future. Successfully completing the MEng course means that you graduate with a Postgraduate level qualification, which can give you an advantage in the job market. We want to help you make the most of all the exciting opportunities the rapidly modernising automotive industry has to offer. So we’ve designed our course to give you the chance to prepare for the next step. As an integrated Master’s student, you’ll study the same content as the Automotive and Motorsport Engineering BEng(Hons), then complete a final year for your Master’s. In that final year we'll concentrate on management skills, all with the aim of enabling you to go on and become a leader in this exciting industry. From designing components for high-performance cars, through to working as a trackside team engineer or even developing the next generation of mass produced vehicles that don't damage the planet. You could be at the forefront of technology reducing emissions to protect the environment for the future, it’s all possible, your skill set will also be transferable to other related industries, for example, rail, aerospace and marine. And it all starts here. Engineering-related problem solving and project work are important elements of the course, previous students have undertaken projects that gave them the opportunity to access our: * Full vehicle four post ride simulator * Two wheel engine and transmission test rig * Engine and electric motor test beds * Dynamic monitoring equipment * Specialist computer packages * Wind tunnel facilities * Electric machine and drive laboratory * Railway locomotive test facility We’ll give you the chance to develop some fundamental skills in automotive engineering, and then apply them to real-world scenarios in the projects you work on. You could get involved in all sorts of different ways. For example, you could join our racing team, Team HARE (http://teamhare.hud.ac.uk/team.html), and get hands-on with the design, development and build of a single-seat Formula Student car (or comparable automotive design and build team project). You could then go even further and be part of the team competing at international events held in places like Spain and Germany. In your final year we’ll look at management across the sector, focusing on vital elements such as finance and project management. The course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), which means it goes towards helping you get Chartered Engineer status (CEng). While you’re here you could take advantage of our strong links with the automotive industry to get a real feeling for how things are done in the real-world. And we’ll give you the chance to go on a year-long placement, gaining some really useful experience to help impress employers – not to mention lots of contacts that could help kick-start your career. With a wealth of expertise in automotive engineering, developed through research and consultancy, we enjoy close relationships with companies such as Nissan, Toyota, BMW, Jaguar, Cummins Turbo Technologies, Eaton Transmissions and BBA Friction, to name a few.
