  • Objectives
    This course aims to provide the opportunity for you to develop the following skills at postgraduate level: -Knowledge of automotive science and its application to the design of a modern land vehicle sub-system. -Competence at understanding the automotive manufacturing process from sub-systems to the manufacturing needs of an assembly line. -The application of a high-level CAD system to the design and packaging of complex assemblies. -Technical topics that will extend your system engineering knowledge, ability and social awareness. -Ability to undertake a significant project that requires the application of material from the taught elements of the pathway and demands the use of modern industrial techniques.
  • Entry requirements
    Entry Requirements Honours degree (or equivalent experience) in -Mechanical Engineering -Manufacturing Engineering -Engineering Systems or a closely related science subject area
  • Academic title
    Automotive System Design and Analysis MSc
  • Course description

    This master's course is intended for graduates from a range of engineering disciplines - mechanical, manufacturing and engineering systems, or closely related science disciplines such as chemical, applied sciences and industrial design. It has three main integrated strands: Automotive Sciences for System Design and Performance Evaluation, Computer Aided Design and Analysis, Optimisation and Noise, Vibration Refinement and Measurement.

    The course is flexible to enable you to develop an individual automotive theme to your technical studies through the selection of research-based activities most relevant to your aspirations.

    Course Structure

    Automotive Chassis Systems

    Vehicle Dynamic Performance Evaluation

    Applied Computer Aided Vehicle Design and Optimisation

    Design Analysis

    Refinement, NVH and System Measurement

    Vehicle Aerodynamics and Air Management

    Plus major project

    Plus one option from the following:

    Research Based Project

    Advanced Power Transmissions

    Materials Selection and Process Evaluation

    Teaching and Assessment

    The course is taught principally through lectures, tutorials, studio based assignment work and laboratory based research activities. The laboratory activities make use of industrial standard facilities such as four-post ride simulator, two-wheel dynamometer, three engine test rigs, one transient engine test rig, wind tunnel, five brake test rigs, thermal camera and modal analysis equipment.

    Assessment methods reflect the emphasis of the course on the ability to apply knowledge and skills, and are diversely linked to examination, assignment, project work and research/laboratory activities.

    Career Opportunities

    It is expected that you will pursue a career within the automotive discipline although the course material and approach will allow entry into any engineering discipline.

    Other Information

    Where possible we aim to arrange a major project related to an existing industrial automotive problem, with contact and supervision within a major automotive supplier. However, if this is not feasible we aim to ensure that the project relates to an area of automotive engineering at a standard to enhance your career prospects.
