Course content

This course provides a dynamic opportunity to develop engineering skills for the automotive industry. It aims to provide in-depth understanding of modern developments in vehicle design, vehicle dynamic control systems, vehicle propulsion systems and vehicle structures. You will build, test and analyse the performance of vehicle control systems, dynamic systems and automotive sub-systems. You will have the opportunity to showcase your specialist skills and interests and demonstrate independent learning via an automotive-focused project, assessed through the production and examination of a thesis, which completes the MSc.

The automotive sector offers a unique and exciting career for graduates. The UK automotive sector alone employs 770,000 people and has 13 research and development centres. According to a report published by the Automotive Council UK, ‘up to 5,000 vacancies are unfilled in the automotive industry due to skills shortages’. This is further reflected in announcements from Ford, Rolls-Royce, Bentley and Jaguar Land Rover in recent years regarding investment in the UK automotive sector.

Accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology on behalf of the Engineering Council as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Candidates must hold a CEng accredited BEng/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree to comply with full CEng registration requirements.
