What will I learn?

Automotive Engineering is rapidly changing and with hybrid, electric and autonomous vehicle technology replacing traditional internal combustion engines, a new generation of engineers need to be trained.The UK is leading the way in green transport and climate change prevention and from 2035 all new vehicles sold in the UK will have to be electric. On this course, you will learn both traditional automotive engineering and electric, hybrid (BEng) and autonomous (MEng) vehicle technology.This course will give you in-depth knowledge of mechanical engineering through modules common to all our programmes, as well as the specialist knowledge and skills to work in today’s rapidly changing automotive industry. You’ll prepare to meet key challenges, such as designing sustainable hybrid and electric vehicles that meet rising safety and performance standards in a cost-effective way. To do this, you’ll develop an awareness of the commercial issues that impact on design and production processes.Our close links with industry ensure that you’ll be prepared to meet the most pressing needs of the automotive sector, and project work in every year will allow you to put theory into practice and prepare for your future career. From your first day on this course you will be encouraged to join our Formula Student team, Leeds Gryphon Racing and engage in the development of an IC, electric or autonomous race car. Early participation in Formula Student has helped some of our students to secure industrial placements with leading automotive companies, formula electric and formula one teams.
