Mechanical with Automotive Engineering with professional placement

Course summary

Specialise in vehicle design, performance, analysis and systems. Develop the engineering skills to work in automotive, transport, mobility and motorsport industries. Our course is for engineers who want to apply fundamental mechanical engineering knowledge to the challenges of the automotive industry including areas such as cost, emissions, performance and materials. You’ll study vehicle design, manufacturing processes and component analysis in the context of the automotive market. In your first two years, you’ll learn how to use mechanical engineering, physical science, maths and computing to assess engineering systems. Throughout your studies, you’ll complement your engineering knowledge with transferable skills that are valued in industry such as problem solving and critical thinking. You’ll also explore the professional behaviours a responsible engineer needs including ethics, environmental and sustainability awareness, compassion and inclusivity. Project work is a big part of your study experience at Bath and is a great opportunity for you to use your knowledge, initiative and creativity to solve complex engineering problems. You could join our award-winning Formula student team, Team Bath Racing Electric. As part of the team, you'll contribute to the design and build of a single-seat racing car and enter in the annual International Formula Student competition. We are invested in helping you get the most out of your learning experience. You’ll learn from academics with expertise in mechanical engineering and established links with industry. They have knowledge in design, manufacture, biomechanics, materials, automotive and aerospace. Their international collaborations and research activities feed into undergraduate teaching and contribute to your learning experience.
