Course content

Our MSc Automotive Engineering course will teach you the skills you need to become a highly skilled engineer, capable of undertaking related tasks within and across different organisations.

Overall the course aims to produce skilled engineers capable of undertaking automotive engineering tasks within and across organisations utilising the latest tools and technologies. The course will encourage the application and development of modern engineering solutions to the problems of fuel efficiency and emissions abatement, as well as the improvement of vehicle performance and stability.

The course explores the wider context of sustainability and climate change, as well as the specific application of advanced control techniques to solve problems through research led powertrain and vehicle system specific modules.

The Master's in Automotive Engineering course will encourage creative thinking and the development of engineering leadership skills, as well as teaching you how to solve problems through research. You’ll engage in independent study, advancing your understanding and developing new skills. The Master’s project provides an opportunity for you to apply this learning to the solution of particular industry problems. These have been regularly showcased at industry events hosted by the course team over the last 12 years, and several of these have matured into doctoral projects.
