BRUNEL UNIVERSITY LONDON

Automotive Engineering

MEng  |  Placement Year:   Yes

Low carbon vehicle technologies are at the cutting edge of innovation within the automotive industry - one of several exciting areas of study for students on this MEng course.

The course develops the key technical and managerial skills that graduates need to excel within a fast-moving industry, with a curriculum designed to give a good balance between fundamental mechanical engineering subjects (including maths and engineering science) and the applied engineering disciplines (such as vehicle design and performance).

We have one of the largest and most active engine research groups in the UK and strong links with industry to provide a vibrant, commercially-focused environment for our students' learning.

Key Modules

Both Automative Engineering programmes at Brunel (BEng and MEng) cover the same topics in Levels 1 and 2, allowing students to transfer between them at the end of Level 2. The courses cover the fundamentals of mechanical engineering and design, providing an excellent grounding in key subjects common throughout the mechanical engineering disciplines.

The first two years/levels also provide exposure to other related engineering subjects, such as electrical and electronic engineering, and commercially important topics, such as management and related law.

Further levels progressively introduce a greater degree of specialisation. Strong emphasis is placed upon achieving a good balance between practical and theoretical engineering skills, making best use of the excellent facilities available.
