Course content

Our Automotive Engineering MSc programme aims to provide those of you with an interest in the automotive industry with knowledge and technical expertise in a wide range of automotive disciplines.

Our MSc Automotive Engineering was created with industry partners, including Ford Motor Company and Jaguar Land Rover, and will provide students with knowledge and technical expertise in a wide range of automotive disciplines.

The Department has a strong and growing research programme with world-class research activities and facilities. We have four major research groups working across the technologies of automotive and aeronautical engineering. Each group works on a variety of research topics, ranging from the development of new design methodologies for the engineering of hybrid powertrains through to investigations into aerodynamics and simulation. Teaching on the MSc is closely aligned to and informed by this research.

A key element of our MSc Automotive Engineering programme is the opportunity for students to access the vehicle proving ground facilities at Horiba MIRA Ltd near Nuneaton, which forms part of Europe's largest transport technology research and development cluster. Experience of MATLAB and Simulink software, both industry standards for technical computation, also forms part of the programme.

Our MSc Automotive Engineering programme is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), which facilitates the progression towards Chartered Engineer status (CEng), after a period of relevant graduate-level employment.

Who should study this programme?

Our Automotive Engineering MSc programme is aimed at existing or prospective product development engineers.
