This course is for those who want to become design engineers in the Automotive industry, to undertake the challenges of modern vehicle design and work in industry as part of teams generating the next phase of road vehicles. As such the course consists of all the necessary elements to ensure its graduates are prepared for the various roles of the modern automotive engineer. Modern production technologies and conceptual design feature highly to promote an innovative design ethos, which will go towards fulfilling the increasingly regulated world of global vehicle design along with an understanding of legal requirements. Fuel efficiency is an area of increasing scrutiny in the consideration of new vehicles and can be achieved by a number of factors, including conceptual engine design, use of hybrid and renewable energies and the streamlining of vehicle aerodynamics, all of which feature heavily on this new bespoke course, designed to meet current and future needs.
