Work in a team to design, build and race a car and prepare for your career in auto engineering. This provides a firm base of engineering principles, knowledge and basic skills and means you can change course at the end of the first year if you prefer. A heavy emphasis is placed on theory and practice, and the School of Engineering and Technology has a policy of using industrial standard software wherever possible.
The job of automotive mechanics used to be simple but because of the high level of technology involved in modern transportation, their job has also evolved. A chassis engineer at heart, Chairman Seita Kanai challenges his engineers to think differently and embrace the Skyactiv technology that has made Mazda a benchmark.
Therefore, online master’s degree programs in automotive engineering are meant for the working automotive engineer. Upon graduation you will have fully satisfied the academic requirements for Incorporated Engineer status and have a well-defined path to Chartered Engineer status with the IMechE and the Engineering Council.
The National Certificate in Motor Industry (Entry Skills) (Level 2) Automotive Electrical and Mechanical Strand, Version 2, is embedded in the programme and provides the foundation of these core skills. Automotive engineering is one of the most technologically interesting and compelling specialties available.
First year Engineering students spend some time in laboratory sessions as part of the course for which protective equipent is mandatory. High school students should take available advanced placement or college classes to help prepare them for university engineering coursework and get a head start on building college credits.
