Course summary

This course covers everything from the principles of suspension design, vehicle mobility and properties of off highway terrains, to the electronic control of vehicles and ride and handling optimisation. You will cover not just theory and technical skills but the research and business techniques needed by professional engineers. Industry figures have helped us to develop a comprehensive curriculum combining core engineering subjects with the latest industrial techniques. Much of our teaching is project led, and is designed to develop the professional skills that you will use as a graduate engineer. Students spend their 12-month placement with companies such as Jaguar Land Rover, Terex, JCB, Caterpillar, and BAE Systems. Past experience shows many students find graduate employment with their placement company.
