This degree aims at providing you with the knowledge and skills required in the modern automotive industry, with a focus on autonomous vehicle technology. The course has a reputation for cutting edge research and knowledge transfer activities within the advanced automotive and power systems engineering sectors, and it will also build on strong links with Formula Student that the School of Engineering has established over the years. The course is designed to meet accreditation requirements of the EIT for Chartered Engineer status. We have strong links with industry and place considerable emphasis on student projects. We also encourage industrial placements as part of a sandwich year option. This degree includes elements of mathematical and physical sciences required to design, develop and manufacture a range of engineering systems. You will also study the elements of electrical engineering such as power and control crucial for analysing and designing electromechanical drive systems. Furthermore, programming smart embedded systems will also be covered in the course so that you are ready for the fast development in autonomous and driverless cars. Finally, you study elements of management, business and professional practice. This will develop your initiative, and effective communication and interpersonal skills, to achieve the high level of technical leadership required in a modern engineering environment. Your new skills will be further tested through group and individual research and design projects.
