Program description

Automotive Engineering (BEng)

Automotive industry in the UK and around the world has seen great technological developments in recent years and despite economic pressures, the industry has faced it is set for continued growth.

The technological challenges the industry faces in achieving efficiency gains to all kinds of vehicles, brought upon by increasingly stringent legislation and customer awareness, has led to an increase in the demand for highly skilled Automotive Engineers.

Our graduates have demonstrated over the decades the competence to respond to the needs of employers and are recognised as able to “hit the ground running” and getting the job done.
