Modern industries rely on engineering innovations and continuous advancement in this field means that today's engineers enjoy dynamic and rewarding career opportunities. Automotive engineering generally leads the field in the development of materials and manufacturing techniques; as well as in the application of computer software programs within the design process and in the vehicles themselves.
This course is designed for the aspiring automotive engineer who wishes to work at the forefront of automotive technology. If you have a background in mechanical, manufacturing and engineering systems, or a closely related science discipline, such as chemical, applied sciences or industrial design, then this is the course for you.
This course will equip you with the advanced practical skills and expert knowledge needed to succeed in the industry. You will be taught by staff who are leading experts in their field and supported by an excellent range of industry standard equipment, including an open plan design studio equipped with design and analysis software and an advanced automotive laboratory with vehicle and engine test facilities including a four-post ride simulator, wind tunnel and thermal imaging facilities.
Originally from Pune, Maharashtra India, Hitesh studied a diploma in Mechanical Engineering, before going onto study Engineering Production. After 8 years of working in Pune’s Automotive industry, focussing specifically on vehicle engineering within load carrying, Hitesh decided he wanted to complement his experience with academic knowledge by studying towards a master's in Automotive Systems Design and Analysis.
Hitesh had never been to England before he decided to come and study at the University of Huddersfield. He says ‘I chose the University because the course has a good reputation and after doing some research the cost of living in Huddersfield is very reasonable".
Hitesh has found the course has taught him a lot about the software side of design, an area which he lacked experience in before. He has found that the course is helping him to cement an academic understanding to his work experience.
On completion of the course, Hitesh is wanting to continue living in the UK and hopes to find a job, working in the automotive sector. This way he will gain work experience here, before returning to Pune, in the future.
An Honours degree or equivalent in mechanical or manufacturing engineering, engineering systems or a closely related subject. Other qualification and/or experience that can demonstrate appropriate knowledge and skills may be considered. IELTS will normally be required for students with overseas status.
