Course summary

Our Automotive Engineering MSc will give you an in-depth insight into the key technological ideas that are driving automotive design and their practical application.

The course has been designed with industry partners. You’ll learn using the latest computer-based analysis and design techniques in the automotive industry. You’ll gain knowledge of a range of industry standard software and hardware.

Your understanding of the theoretical aspects of automotive engineering will be enhanced by practical application whether by virtual simulation or by working on real vehicles in our advanced automotive workshop.

On successful completion of study, we will issue the following award: MSc Automotive Engineering.

Teaching

We know that everyone learns differently. So not only do we use traditional ways of teaching like lectures, we also use problem-based learning to help you apply your skills.

For this course, you'll:

  • Work with others on group work
  • Delve deeper into subject areas in workshops
  • Be expected to study independently

Our teaching is supported through our Virtual Learning Environment called Blackboard. This means you can access a range of materials to support your lectures wherever you are.

We’ll also assign you a supervisor to support you throughout your research project.

Assessment

There are two types of assessments: practice (also called formative) or formal (also called summative). Practice assessments do not count towards your final mark. These are your chance to test your understanding and learn how to improve for the real thing. You’ll have formal assessments at the end of each module. These could include essays, exams, or portfolios.

Careers

After completing the Automotive Engineering MSc, you’ll be equipped to work in the following areas:

  • Vehicle manufacturing
  • Research and development
  • Design and test laboratories
  • Automotive component suppliers
  • Equipment manufacturers
  • Fuel and oil companies
  • Motorsports teams
  • Engineering consultancies
  • Maintenance

Eager for more knowledge? Upon completion with a good performance, you’ll be ideally placed for further academic study at PhD level.
