About the Course

Advance your skills so you can design and work with the fast-moving technologies of the automotive industry. This degree is built on core studies in mechanical engineering, with a specialisation in automotive engineering to develop economical and sustainable automotive designs, or solve automotive engineering problems. You'll study vehicle power systems, vehicle noise and vibration, vehicle handling and control, and sustainable vehicle design, automotive manufacturing and vehicle aerodynamics. The degree incorporates complete car design with a focus on new technologies that benefit society such as driverless cars, full-electric, hybrid power trains and fuel cells. It takes a global view and is increasingly environmental in outlook. The emphasis will be on hands-on learning, with your work largely laboratory-based, where you'll conduct experiments and design your own projects. With the opportunity to undertake industry placements either locally or internationally, you'll be work-ready when you graduate. There are also opportunities to tackle research projects in partnership with industry, like the Engineers Without Borders Challenge. This degree is an outcome of industry and student demand.
