The M.S. in Automotive Engineering at University of Huddersfield is designed for the aspiring automotive engineer who wishes to work at the forefront of automotive technology. 


The Automotive Engineering program offered by University of Huddersfield is designed to satisfy the needs of graduate mechanical engineers, or graduates with an appropriate scientific background, who wish to redirect their careers towards automotive engineering and automotive system design. In doing so we focus engineering science competence towards its application within the automotive arena and provide a detailed knowledge of the operational needs of a land vehicle.

The main aims of the course are:

  • extend current engineering knowledge towards their application within aspects of automotive science and the design of a modern land vehicle sub-system.
  • develop the social awareness and responsibilities of the engineer in society.
  • provide the opportunity to develop research competence and apply individual and independent thought to the understanding or solution to a problem through an advanced directed research project.
  • provide the opportunity to apply high-level analytical software towards the design and packaging of complex assemblies.
