Automotive Engineering Loughborough University

Undergraduate

The Automotive courses at Loughborough were the first such courses in the UK and have established a national and international reputation for the quality of the courses and the graduates produced. The courses are unique in that they are run in an Automotive Department by academics working with the Automotive Industry.

Both the MEng and BEng courses allow you to acquire a firm foundation in engineering science as it is applied to automobile design, development and manufacture, with considerable emphasis given to the use of modern analytical and Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) methods.

The strong Automotive focus continues throughout the courses with the continuation of vehicle design ultimately leading to the complete design of a vehicle and the introduction of a broad range of Automotive modules. Both courses are designed to develop engineers with strong analytical, modelling, experimental and design ability, but also with excellent communication and team working skills.
