Automotive Engineering

On this course students develop skills in the use of virtual reality as a tool for the representation and behavioural simulation of components and systems within vehicles; the tools are mapped onto a basic underpinning of theoretical and practical aspects to support their applications; students also use sophisticated computer tools, such as Adams mechanisms, computational fluid dynamics, finite element analysis and solid modelling to solve real engineering problems.

Entry requirements

2nd Class Honours degree or equivalent in an appropriate discipline; evidence of necessary knowledge and skills to successfully enter and complete the course considered.

Course modules

Modules include: dynamics; digital design and analysis; powertrain; control; hybrids and sustainable technologies; product life-cycle management; vehicle ride and refinement; thermo fluids; Master's project.

Assessment methods
