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.
2nd Class Honours degree or equivalent in an appropriate discipline; evidence of necessary knowledge and skills to successfully enter and complete the course considered.
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.
Effective communication is key in a professional environment; for this reason, the course uses project reports, record keeping and oral presentations extensively in assessments; assessment focuses largely on projects and case studies and the course makes personal development planning an integral part of the learning process.
