Bath has a strong tradition of achievement in mechanical engineering research and education. Year one You will study core modules in Engineering Science, Engineering Analytics, Vehicle Design, Materials Engineering & Performance, and Professional & Technical Communication Skills. You will also learn how to critically evaluate the automotive design process to ensure that the design, simulation and testing process is fully validated.
Professionals can practice as manufacturing engineers, inventors, quality assurance managers, technical sales managers, systems engineering managers and technical consultants. Career prospects for graduates in automotive engineering include vehicle manufacturing companies, design firms, engineering consultancies, the motorsport industry or in research and development.
Department of Automotive Engineering has been continuing its education in the new Engineering Faculty building which is about 7700 m2 and fully air-conditioned for the comforts of the students as well as academic and administrative staff. Our graduates typically enter work with blue chip engineering companies, and are expected to progress to Chartered Engineer status.
Students who complete a work placement are more likely to graduate with a better degree and obtain higher quality work on graduation. In addition to designing a home or building, engineering professionals also make adjustments to already developed plans. Communication abilities are becoming increasingly important as engineers interact more frequently with specialists, such as attorneys, in a wide range of fields outside engineering.
The aim of the Automotive Engineering Department is to prepare engineering candidates for various branches of this industry with an improved self-confidence and individual initiative. Studying Automotive Engineering at UWE Bristol will help you develop a strong grounding in mathematics, design, manufacturing and mechanical engineering.
