Course summary

Our Automotive Engineering course will encourage you to innovate and work collaboratively with tutors, experts and peers to gain practical and theoretical engineering skills that modern employers want. You will learn how to use the Conceive – Design – Implement – Operate (CDIO) teaching framework, so you can work on projects from initial design to implementation, and address developing challenges in the industry, such as lightweight structures, energy efficient transportation and sustainable design during your studies. Gain practical experience so you can work in every aspect of the industry, from suspension to chassis and manufacturing systems. Our graduates have progressed into roles with leading manufacturers such as Jaguar Land Rover and Ford Motor Company. We are one of the UK universities taking part in the international Formula Student event at Silverstone, hosted by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). Our team is truly interdisciplinary, attracting students from a wide range of courses, all contributing towards our goal to bring engineering skills, team spirit and employment-relevant skills together. Foundation Year The foundation year is designed to give you the opportunity to develop your academic and interpersonal skills while developing your subject knowledge further to support you to success on your academic path. By studying a foundation year, your first year will be spent learning a wide range of broad subject areas which then open up opportunities for you to specialise further in your next year – which would be the first year of a full degree programme.
