Inspiring Graduate

"As a taught Master’s, the course employs a variety of approaches. In addition to learning theory I also took part in lab experiments,software tutorials and took part in individual and group research and presentations. I made good use of the labs to get to grips with software packages. We were able to use the engine dynamometers and the wind tunnel for some experiments. I would definitely recommend the course to those interested in the automotive industry. It will give you the skills to pursue your ambitions at the highest level as well as furthering your research." - Panagiotis Moutsioulis, Project Engineer. Jaguar Land Rover
