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 two certificates:

  • Powertrain Simulation and Test
  • Intelligent Vehicle Systems

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.

Who should study this programme?

Our Postgraduate Certificates are for engineering professionals who wish to deepen their knowledge and understanding in a particular area of automotive engineering. We are also a provider of postgraduate certificates through the MIRA Technology Institute.

What makes this programme different?

  • high levels of flexibility
  • opportunity to progress to a master's degree
  • use of state-of-the-art facilities at both Loughborough University and MIRA Technology Institute

How you'll be assessed

The postgraduate certificate you undertake will determine your main methods of assessment. However, most modules are assessed through coursework or examinations, or a combination of the two.

How you'll study

  • Lectures
  • Seminars
  • Tutorials
  • Independent study

Future career prospects

These programmes are generally undertaken by engineers already working in the industry who wish to learn more about, or focus on, a particular area of automotive engineering.
