Automotive Engineering with Professional Development

Mechanical Engineering is the most established subject area at Brunel. It is one of very few in the UK that provides broad education in mechanical, energy, aeronautics, building services and automotive/motorsport engineering. Our annual Brunel Engineers event offers you the opportunity to demonstrate your final-year work to fellow students and industry representatives. This exciting celebration brings together the creative minds of our final-year students to showcase projects ranging from nano and micro engineering to larger scale aviation projects. Our dynamic student Brunel Racing TT Team enter the TT zero electric motorcycle race on the Isle of Man and our Brunel Racing FS team compete in the Formula Student competitions every year. Wherever your interests lie, we are confident that you’ll find the course that is right for you at Brunel. Our course produces automotive engineering graduates of the highest calibre. You’ll develop the technical and managerial skills needed to design, develop and manufacture environmentally-friendly road vehicles for the future. Our degree balances the practical with the commercial, incorporating professional skills such as management and law. We aim to equip you with everything you need to become a leader in the exciting, fast-moving automotive sector. You’ll study analytical and computational skills as well as the principles and concepts for the design and operation of road car and commercial vehicles.
