We offer a range of Automotive Engineering Postgraduate Certificates all designed to develop the skills of trained engineers to become specialists in particular disciplines within automotive engineering.

Our Automotive Engineering Postgraduate Certificates all share a particular emphasis on the skills to use simulation and test tools to develop the understanding required to resolve problems and engineer better products.

The Automotive Engineering Certificates integrate engineering fundamentals, practical simulation and real world whole-vehicle testing to develop the understanding required to resolve problems and engineer better products. Each of the Postgraduate Certificates consists of a set of three modules from our Automotive Systems Engineering MSc programme which is accredited by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). We also offer each module as a short course.

We currently offer three certificates:

  • Powertrain Simulation and Test
  • Intelligent Vehicle Systems
  • Body and Chassis Simulation and Test

The Automotive Engineering Certificates has high levels of flexibility to accommodate students that require only a single module or where a student wishes to pursue the programme to a full MSc. The structure also provides for students to change path and progress through the qualification levels.

Through our collaboration with the MIRA Technology Institute (MTI), exercises at MIRA proving ground and in Loughborough laboratory facilities are integrated into the certificates as a means of achieving the best possible learning outcomes.

What you'll study

Loughborough University’s Department of Aeronautical and Automotive Engineering is an engineering specialist centre for teaching and research. With programmes dating back to 1919, the Department's reputation in the delivery of modules has been built on nearly 100 years of teaching excellence.

Modules

Certificate in Powertrain Simulation and Test Modules

The overall aim of this certificate is to develop the underlying skills you need to engineer, analyse and develop conventional, hybrid and electric powertrains in the context of the vehicle attributes and overall product development process. The Certificate in Powertrain Simulation and Test consists of three compulsory modules, each worth 20 credits.

  • Vehicle and Powertrain Functional Performance
  • Sustainable Vehicle Powertrains
  • Powertrain Calibration Optimisation

Certificate in Intelligent Vehicle Systems modules

The overall aim is to develop the knowledge and skills to develop, analyse and implement intelligent features and autonomous functions on road vehicles. The certificate develops this in the context of the fundamentals of autonomous control, vehicle dynamic performance and simulation capability. The certificate consists of three compulsory modules, each worth 20 credits.

  • Vehicle Ride and Handling Dynamics
  • Vehicle Systems Integration
  • Autonomous Vehicle Systems

Certificate in Body and Chassis Simulation and Test modules

The overall aim of this certificate is to develop the engineering skills required to analyse and develop body and chassis systems. The certificate develops this in the context of primary vehicle systems for example vehicle braking systems and core vehicle attributes, such as Vehicle NVH, body structures and crashworthiness. The Certificate in Body and Chassis Simulation and Test consists of three compulsory modules, each worth 20 credits.

  • Vehicle Systems Analysis
  • Body Engineering
  • Vehicle Aerodynamics
