BEng (Hons) Sustainable and Electric Vehicle Engineering with Industrial Placement Year

University of Bolton

Course Details

Become part of a select group of future engineers working at state-of-the-art facilities as you gain the knowledge and experience needed to enter this exciting, fast-moving, and essential industry.

Creating, assessing, and supporting the development of more sustainable, environmentally friendly vehicles requires engineers to work across both mechanical and electric systems. Until now, only a postgraduate education could provide this combination of automotive expertise. The University of Bolton's new BEng (Hons) in Sustainable and Electric Vehicle Engineering with industrial placement year is the first undergraduate degree that delivers the multi-disciplinary approach required by the automotive industry.

You'll get up close and personal with advanced manufacturing technologies at an unrivalled £13 million development housing the latest equipment and technology: including a wind tunnel, cutting-edge workshops, and manufacturing areas. You'll be guided by industry experts and passionate tutors as you work towards creating a new generation of vehicles with a social, economic and environmental impact. You'll also have opportunities to work on live projects, supporting your learning experience.

This is a career-focused programme appropriate for those working towards professional registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng). With a clear focus on the skills and knowledge the industry needs, our dedicated and knowledgeable team will build your understanding of the key areas necessary to stand out to employers.

The University will offer lots of support to help you find a placement with a relevant company in preparation for your year in industry (the industrial placement takes place between the second and final years of your course). Through our relationships with employers, we'll share placement adverts as they become available, and you can also seek your own placement. Our placement team will help with applications and interview skills. Your placement does not have to be in the Bolton area – it could be elsewhere in the UK. Completing a year in industry will give you invaluable skills and experience that will help you in your final year of study with us and boost your CV to help you find an enhanced career afterwards. If you're unsuccessful in securing a placement, you'll be able to transfer directly to the final year of study and complete your degree in three years.
