Automotive Engineering


The automotive industries are central to the manufacturing sectors of many countries. This includes the UK where companies like BMW, Jaguar Land Rover, Nissan and Toyota continue to fly the flag of automotive innovation and quality production.

These brands are supported by a huge network of manufacturers who constitute an elaborate and wide-ranging set of suppliers to the industry both in the UK and internationally.

Automotive Engineering is increasingly global in its outlook and multidisciplinary in its operation. With skills ranging from mechanical design, electronic systems, manufacturing techniques, management,

ergonomics and human perception of things such as noise, vibration and performance, the well-rounded automotive engineer will be equipped for a broad range of career options.

The degree is underpinned by WMG’s wide-ranging automotive research, including a state-of-the-art hybridpowertrain facility and a low carbon vehicle and technology project.

Career destinations for Automotive Engineers range from research and development positions within industrial oracademic establishments, to design and manufacturing posts in car companies or the supply industries.
