Amongst the many mechanical engineering branches is the branch that alone incorporates the fundamentals of mechanical, electronic, electrical, software and safety engineering. You will build upon your knowledge of engineering science and of your particular knowledge of Powertrain and Chassis Systems (KB5002) to develop a knowledge and understanding of the legislation relating to vehicle emissions and fuel economy, of the drive cycles used to determine that information and of the technologies that contribute to the reduction of harmful emissions.
When you study with us you’ll learn all the key aspects of automotive engineering that will help you to get a job and you’ll have the intellectual, technical and personal qualities needed to implement new technologies in the automotive engineering sector.
Depending on your second year results, you may have the opportunity to transfer to the four-year MEng Automotive Engineering course, which fully meets the academic requirements to become a Chartered Engineer with the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.
You will have the opportunity to participate in applied research projects at Lawrence Tech’s Automotive Engineering Institute, where you may work with corporations and governmental organizations to research vehicle dynamics; driveline technology; noise, vibration, and harshness; emerging energy technologies; terrain vehicle mobility; and hybrid vehicles.
The programs currently offered by our department comprises of the following: Light Automotive Training, Automotive Electrical & Electronics Training, Heavy Automotive Training, Small Engine Principles Training, Panel Beating Training and Spray Painting Training.
