About the programme

In the automotive industry, intense competition together with sophisticated customer demands and challenging environmental requirements mean that technical innovation, leadership and performance are critical to success. Engineering designs must operate in the harshest of environments and provide unparalleled levels of reliability and function.

The interdisciplinary needs of automotive engineering are reflected in our curriculum. You will study the essential principles of mechanical engineering and design in Years 1 and 2, alongside introductory courses in electronics and control. Year 3 includes a course in Dynamics of Machines and Vehicles, as well as an interdisciplinary group project, such as the design and construction of a vehicle to be entered for competition.
