What's covered in the course?

Our MSc Automotive Engineering course will teach you the skills you need to become a skilled engineer, capable of undertaking related tasks within and across different organisations.

The course will encourage creative thinking and the development of engineering leadership skills, as well as teaching you how to solve problems through research. You’ll engage in independent study, advancing your understanding and developing new skills.

In addition to further academic research opportunities, career prospects are expected to keep pace with the rapid advances in computer aided methods and intelligent technologies, hence, there is expected to be continuing demand for competent, versatile postgraduates who can design and implement innovative solutions for industry.

Why choose us?

-You’ll be introduced to industry-standard, sophisticated computer-based tools, such as mechanism analysis, computational fluid dynamics, finite element analysis and solid modelling, and have the opportunity to apply them to real engineering problems.
-Our accreditation from the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) keeps our course fresh and relevant, as well as providing us with key industry contacts and insight.

Course in depth

Knowledge and understanding are acquired though formal lectures, tutor-led seminars and practical activities, and a range of independent learning activities. Emphasis is placed on guided, self-directed and student-centred learning with a progressively increasing independence of approach, thought and process. This independent learning includes an element of peer review in order to evaluate the effectiveness of the learning.

Lectures are used to introduce themes, theories and concepts, which are further explored in seminars. Technology enhanced learning is used, where appropriate, through the provision of online resources, discussion forums and other activities. Analytical and problem-solving skills are further developed using a range of appropriate 'real' and 'theoretical' case studies and problem-based learning scenarios.

You will be supported by a personal tutor based at the University, who will see you for regular one-to-one meetings. These meetings will generally take place at the beginning of each semester and at the end of the academic year.

The course has an emphasis on active and participative education, including practical learning, problem-based learning and group work, which will develop their skills of analysis, synthesis, decision making and the ability to cope with new and unfamiliar problems.

A range of assessment methods are employed with associated assessment criteria. Knowledge and skills are assessed, formatively and summatively, by a number of methods such as coursework, examinations (seen and unseen, open and closed-book), presentations, practical assignments, vivas, online forums, podcasts, and project work.
