Overview

The automotive industry is changing rapidly and moving towards electrical vehicles which are set to completely dominate the market in the next two decades. 

This Automotive Engineering (Hons) degree from University of South Wales has been designed with these technological developments in mind with as much emphasis on electrical side of vehicle design as the mechanical side so that graduates are well quipped for the automotive industry of the future.

Designed to meet the accreditation requirements of the IET for Chartered Engineer status, the course includes elements of mathematical and physical sciences required to design, develop and manufacture a range of engineering systems.

You will study the elements of electrical engineering, such as power and control, crucial for analysing and designing electromechanical drive systems. Programming smart embedded systems will also be covered so that you are ready for the fast development in autonomous and driverless cars.
