Automotive Engineering with Foundation Year

•Study your foundation year, then progress to a degree with industry accreditation from the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). •Learn the underpinning science, mathematics and engineering principles to be a successful practitioner in the automotive industry. •Gain an appreciation of the wider multidisciplinary engineering context, economic, environmental and social implications of the production of automobiles. •Become an expert in vehicle specific-systems and their safe operation. Become a high-quality graduate engineer with specialist knowledge of automotive technology and the complementary professional and personal skills required for a successful career. Prepare to work in areas such as vehicle design, vehicle dynamic and control, product, manufacturing, testing, service, maintenance, R&D or other commercial engineering enterprises. How you learn The course is suitable if you don’t meet the entry requirements for our BEng (Hons) Automotive Engineering course, or you want extra preparation before starting degree-level study. You share the first year with other engineering, maths and physics foundation year students, then move on to the degree. You experience and engage in a variety of learning activities as they progress through the course. We have designed a balanced mix of activities to enable knowledge acquisition, ensure understanding and develop students as a professional and enhance their employability. You learn through •lectures •tutorials/seminars •engineering workshops and/or laboratories In the foundation year, you’ll study the fundamental maths, science and engineering principles that you’ll need at undergraduate level, and apply them to a range of different topics. You’ll learn through many of the same techniques used on the degree course, and familiarise yourself with Sheffield Hallam and its facilities — ensuring that you’re ready to hit the ground running.
