BEng (Hons) Automotive Engineering
Wrexham Glyndwr University – This honours degree is for those who have a strong interest in mechanical engineering and a clear desire to develop their knowledge and skills in automotive engineering. It has been designed for the automotive industry (regional and national) in response to the shortfall of mechanical engineers.
The course explores fully the engineering, design, analysis and development of modern cars using various race cars as support for teaching. It also puts emphasis on learning transferable skills, which are applicable to many other industries.
The exciting range of career options open to you when you graduate includes working with car manufacturers and their supply network, in automotive research and development, in consultancy, engineering management, automotive design and in the motorsport industry.
There’s a national shortage of fully-qualified engineers in the automotive industry; with a degree in automotive technology you’ll stand out from the crowd when it comes to finding employment.
At this level, the teaching team starts to encourage the students to work and learn by themselves. We are not only preparing you to be a knowledgeable practitioner, but we are also preparing you to become a reliable and independent problem solver.
