Course summary

The future of the automotive industry needs a new type of engineer, someone who is in their element with complex propulsion systems incorporating combustion engines, electric machines, and batteries. We’ve designed a bespoke course to prepare mechanical engineers for the electrification of their sector. Your studies will focus on the design, performance, and operation of automotive powertrains and vehicle systems. We’ll teach you about electrical components, and their mechanical contexts and constraints. This means you’ll understand both the fundamental principles of batteries, power electronics, and motors, as well as how to integrate these into a system. By the end of your course, you should be able to analyse vehicle requirements to design and specify different types of propulsion systems.

Industry needs innovative engineers who can create sustainable solutions for the next generation of vehicles. To truly contribute to the future of your sector you will need a diverse and transferable skill set. During your course, you will cover the breadth of modern automotive engineering and explore in detail all aspects of automotive propulsion, from batteries and electric motors to advanced combustion engines and their fuels. Alongside this, you will have developed skills in engineering project management, as well as vehicle dynamics and aerodynamics.

CAREER

Our course's mix of theory, project work, and research dissertation means that you will develop a range of advanced engineering skills to pursue a career in the automotive sector. Our past graduates have secured jobs such as: Calibration engineer, Ford Motor Company Ltd, Product engineer, Renault, Engineering consultant, D'Appolonia.
