The BEng (Hons) in Mechanical and Automotive Engineering shares modules with our Mechanical Engineering programme , but focuses on automotive engineering and design. While master’s degree programs in automotive engineering are available, automotive engineering is a complex and interdisciplinary field, so students may also find relevant coursework through graduate programs in electrical engineering, environmental engineering and mechanical engineering. As the subject of Engineering and our school continuously evolve, the range of modules available and the content of individual modules may change in future years. Automotive engineers should be creative, inquisitive, analytical, and detail oriented.
You also benefit from multidisciplinary design work with students from other engineering disciplines in order to simulate an industrial engineering context. To apply for this course, you should have an undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering, automotive engineering or vehicle engineering. You will be helped to find the right role by an engineering placement manager based at Harper Adams.
This study program aims to provide graduates with the technical qualities, transferable skills and independent learning ability to make them effective in organisations that design and develop automotive products. For CEng you need to have a recognised Bachelor’s degree with Honours plus a recognised Master’s degree or equivalent. The IMechE has given the BEng course the maximum accreditation level available to a BEng course under the Engineering Council’s guidelines (UK SPEC). California Polytechnic State University in both San Luis Obispo and Pomona campuses has a highly recommended program for potential automotive engineers.
Our Careers and Employment Service offers resources and support that will help you find roles matching your interests and skills. You will develop practical, professional engineering skills, including skills required for conceiving, designing, implementing and operating engineering solutions. The automotive component of CES expands as global anticipation for automated driving and enhanced connectivity intensifies. The State of Michigan is and will continue to be a leader in automotive manufacturing, which creates a synergistic learning interchange with U-M. The student does not receive any hands-on experience, which can be important to landing a job in automotive engineering.
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. It will help you to use the knowledge you have gained on the course to solve engineering problems found in industry, select appropriate methods to solve problems and show awareness of the limitations of computational methods. This module deals with the design and analysis of major automotive systems, including the chassis, the suspension, the steering system, the braking system and the power transmission.
