The 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.
Specialist areas of study including advanced engine design and vehicle dynamics will enable you to focus on areas of specialist interest that can be developed in the Group and Major Project modules.
Within many of the modules, the course considers the environmental aspects of design and technology which is transferable to a broad range of employment opportunities. We run a number of extra-curricular activities which provide an excellent experience for all types of automotive engineering careers that can be linked with your project and assignment work.
Our BEng (Hons) degrees in BEng(Hons) Automotive Engineering (Full Time 3 Years; EngC ref 15956) Engineering are accredited as meeting the academic requirement, in part, for Chartered Engineer (CEng in Part) registration by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers under licence from the UK regulator, the Engineering Council.
Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC). An accredited degree will provide you with some or all of the underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills for eventual registration as an Incorporated (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng).
Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by other countries that are signatories to international accords.
