This course is specifically aimed at International students, supporting those wishing to gain practical work based experiential learning. Together with studying your chosen course we are offering an additional 6 month placement opportunity, making the course 18 months in length. This allows students with limited experience to put into practice the skills and techniques developed throughout the Master’s degree.
The UK automotive industry is a vital part of the UK economy worth more than £82 billion turnover and adding £18.6 billion value to the UK economy. Employing in excess of 168,000 directly in manufacturing and in excess of 823,000 across the wider automotive industry.Automotive engineering is generally at the forefront of development. The concept of a driverless vehicle is now a reality and it is only public confidence and an adequate infrastructure that prevents it being introduced within the public domain. Although an exciting topic, globally it is a highly competitive industry where engineers require a sound understanding of engineering principles.This advanced course is designed to satisfy the needs of graduate mechanical engineers, or graduates with an appropriate scientific background, who wish to redirect their careers towards automotive engineering and automotive system design. In doing so we focus engineering science competence towards its application within the automotive arena and provide detailed knowledge of the operational needs of a land vehicle.The main aims of the course are to:
- extend current knowledge towards their application within aspects of automotive science and the design of a modern land vehicle sub-system.
- develop social awareness and responsibilities of engineers in society.
- provide the opportunity to develop research competence through an advanced directed research project.
- provide the opportunity to apply high-level analytical software towards the design and packaging of complex assemblies.
Students studying this course will also be provided with access to the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) resources during their studies with us.
