Course Overview

Automotive industry in the UK, and around the world, has seen great technological developments in recent years and despite economic pressures, the industry has faced, it is set for continued growth. The technological challenges the industry faces in achieving efficiency gains to all kinds of vehicles, brought upon by increasingly stringent legislation and customer awareness, has led to an increase in the demand for highly skilled Automotive Engineers. Our graduates have demonstrated, over the decades, the competence to respond to the needs of employers and are recognised as being able to “hit the ground running” and get the job done.

Underpinned by core mechanical engineering science and its application to design and the solution of a range of engineering problems in the context of the automotive industry. The Automotive Engineering programmes have been developed to equip students with the specific needs of this industry, including design, manufacturing, quality and systems engineering – all areas which are crucial to modern vehicle engineering operations.

Assessment

The course is assessed by a mixture of coursework, phase tests, presentations, vivas and examinations.

Career Opportunities

Current high demand for automotive engineering graduates is reflected in the high percentage of our students being drafted into full-time employment or further study within 6 months of finishing their studies. Large UK based automotive manufacturers and Tier 1 suppliers absorb the bulk of our graduates, as do research and consultancy firms. Our Alumni have gone on to have very successful careers at such companies as Jaguar Land Rover, Ford, McLaren Automotive, Mahle Powetrain, JCB as well as motorsport firms AMG Mercedes, Williams F1 and Force India.
