Masters degrees in Automotive Engineering equip postgraduates with the skills to design, develop and manufacture mechanical systems for a range of vehicles.
Taught MSc degrees are typical for the field, though research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes may be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in an appropriate subject such as Mechanical Engineering.
Why study a Masters in Automotive Engineering?
Automotives are a part of our day-to-day lives: from the public transport we use to get to work, the vehicles which carry home our shopping, and the craft which delivers our mail.
These courses will train you to design and develop efficient, reliable and sustainable mechanical systems for a range of vehicles including cars, motorcycles, trucks and aviation automobiles.
You will explore techniques in electrical and electronic operation engineering, as well as software and smart systems, and wireless technologies. Consideration is also given to structural design such as aerodynamics, as well as performance, quality, durability and safety.
Careers in this field are highly diverse, ranging from aerospace engineering to maritime vehicle design, as well as manufacturing and even roles within the armed forces.
