The Automotive courses at Loughborough were the first such courses in the UK and have established a national and international reputation for the quality of the courses and the graduates produced. The courses are unique in that they are run in an Automotive Department by academics working with the Automotive Industry. Both the MEng and BEng courses allow you to acquire a firm foundation in engineering science as it is applied to automobile design, development and manufacture, with considerable emphasis given to the use of modern analytical and Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) methods. The strong Automotive focus continues throughout the courses with the continuation of vehicle design ultimately leading to the complete design of a vehicle and the introduction of a broad range of Automotive modules. Both courses are designed to develop engineers with strong analytical, modelling, experimental and design ability, but also with excellent communication and team working skills. This extended course has been developed to allow you to broaden your knowledge of automotive engineering, provide the opportunity to study topics of particular interest in more depth and to undertake a substantial individual project. The first two years are studied in common with the BEng students. In Year 3, MEng students study a wider range of subjects and in the final year the teaching and assessment are conducted at an advanced level with taught material drawing on current research topics and with substantial project work included. Through exchange schemes there are also opportunities to study for part of the final year at external national and overseas research establishments and universities.
