¿Qué aprenderé?

Gain the skills to design and work with the fast moving technologies of the automotive industry.

This program is built on core studies in mechanical engineering, with a specialization in automotive engineering to develop economical and sustainable automotive designs, or solve automotive engineering problems.

You'll study vehicle power systems, sustainable vehicle design and automotive manufacturing and vehicle handling and control, vehicle aerodynamics, and vehicle noise and vibration.

The program incorporates complete car design with a focus on new technologies that benefit society such as driverless cars, full-electric, hybrid power trains and fuel cells. It takes a global view and is increasingly environmental in outlook.

The emphasis will be on hands-on learning, with your work largely laboratory-based, where you'll conduct experiments and design your own projects.

With at least 12 weeks of industry placements undertaken locally or internationally, you'll be work-ready when you graduate. There are also opportunities to tackle research projects in partnership with industry, like the Engineers without Borders Challenge.

This program is an outcome of industry and student demand.
