Course summary

A need for increased fuel efficiency, lighter vehicles, and a need to meet new environmental regulations, alongside a need for delivering superior value to customer, means that automotive companies are focusing on developing new materials to keep up with policies, as well as increased demand.Automotive Materials is therefore an increasingly important area of study, as the industry operates to meet changing needs. The very fabric that our vehicles are made of need to reflect this, as well as maintaining appearance, functionality and safety aspects, all whilst keeping costs to the customer down.Our Automotive Materials degree combines the core elements of materials engineering with specific training of relevance to the automotive industries. Selected modules are taught in conjunction with the Department of Aeronautical and Automotive Engineering. This course will give you the opportunity to explore and deepen your knowledge and understanding of the scientific, engineering and design aspects of automotive materials, their structure, properties, processing, and in-service behaviour.At Loughborough, our course will take you from the fundamental science and engineering of materials, to the cutting-edge of the subject. During your time with us, you will have access to our state-of-the-art experimental labs to complement your lectures and will be taught by world-leading academics whose influence extends outside of the lecture theatre. In year three, students will complete a research project on a specific topic of interest supervised by a member of academic staff, potentially in collaboration with an industrial partner. Backed by all sectors of the automotive and transport industries, this is the definitive course to prepare you for a career in an important industrial world market.Our Automotive Materials course utilises the resources and expertise for which Loughborough University is a Centre of Excellence and is recognised as such by BAE Systems, Jaguar Land Rover, Ford Motor Company and Rolls-Royce, as well as national research and education leaders in materials and automotive engineering. It offers a special blend of materials engineering knowledge linked to an appreciation of vehicle and engine design, plus management skills and the international awareness that is required of professional engineers.**What's the difference between MEng and BEng?**The first two years of a BEng or MEng share the same content, format and structure, with a good mix of theory, application and practical content from day one. The MEng differs from the BEng course in the third and fourth years by offering the opportunity to study technical and management topics at a more advanced level. It is possible to transfer from a BEng to an MEng from the start of the course up to the end of the second year, providing that the transfer progression criteria have been met.
