BSc (Hons) in Automotive Engineering

Following the predicted fossil fuel shortage, research into new power sources and engine technologies based on them, including hybrid technologies, have led to exciting new developments in all forms of automotive equipment used for the different travel modes. New opportunities are opening up and increasing numbers of young people are interested in selecting this as a desirable career field.

This industry-driven programme will keep you ahead of the curve and prepare you for a career in the automotive industry. This four-year programme offers specialist modules whilst maintaining the broad-based engineering background associated with Mechanical Engineering. Students can also take the Industrial Placement at the end of 2nd Year, providing the opportunity for a semester-long placement with an engineering-based organisation.
