Find out more about the TEF.

Are you interested in how to make cars better, faster, safer, cleaner and more sustainable? The automotive industry, which includes successful manufacturers like Nissan, Honda and Jaguar Land Rover, needs engineers who can work on design, production, and research and development. The first year of the course provides a foundational grounding in engineering as well as introducing aspects of vehicle design. From the second year the focus is more fully on automotive engineering. Modules that are unique to this course include ‘Performance Modelling for Road & Racing Cars’, ‘Energy Sources and Storage’ and ‘Automotive Design and Analysis’. We encourage you to spend a full year in the automotive industry between your second and final years. This BEng (Hons) course will meet part of the academic requirement to be a Chartered Engineer, which is associated with higher salaries. You can meet the requirement in full by studying for an additional year and gaining an MEng (Hons). If you know from the start that you’d prefer an MEng, please apply for MEng (Hons) Automotive Engineering instead of this course.
