Course content

Combine specialist knowledge in engineering with advanced business skills to impact the future of vehicle engineering in the automotive sector.

Our course gives you the opportunity to build on your first degree with more in-depth knowledge in automotive engineering. Alongside this, you’ll learn key business management skills relevant to a variety of industries but focusing first on the automotive sector.

You’ll advance your technical engineering knowledge in areas such as propulsion systems and how they will influence the future of vehicle engineering. Exploring a range of automotive engineering applications and technologies, you’ll consider their impact, analysing past failures and predicting future challenges and successes. Using a systems-thinking approach, you’ll learn to understand wider challenges that affect the automotive sector including moral, ethical and sustainability issues.

At the start of your course, you’ll be set a topical automotive theme to carry through into group projects. This ensures the subject-based units are current and relevant to professional practice in the industry. It also gives you the benefit of a personalised learning pathway.

Complementing your engineering studies, you’ll learn about business and management in the automotive sector. You’ll cover areas such as resource management, business processes, business theory, and change management. All of this is designed to give you the opportunity to develop skills that will be useful for your future career. A key part of this will be working on group projects with students across our automotive courses to create a collaborative and transdisciplinary learning environment. And our ‘practice track’ business project allows you to work on a real engineering management challenge together with an industrial partner.
