At the start of your course, you’ll be set a topical automotive theme to carry through into group projects.

Your studies will cover some of the leading areas of development in industry such as advanced propulsion systems, sustainable mobility and innovation for a zero carbon economy.
You'll explore the impact of a range of applications and technologies, analysing past failures and predicting future challenges and successes. You’ll develop systems-thinking approaches to understand the breadth of challenges faced in the sector such as moral, ethical and sustainability issues.
Complementing your technology studies, you’ll learn about business and management in the automotive sector. You’ll cover areas such as resource management, business processes, business theory, and change management. A key part is our consultancy project, which allows you to work on a real engineering management challenge together with an industrial partner. In this you’ll explore new and existing business models, including innovative and conscientious partnerships that balance economic growth with the impact of their activity on society.
