The automotive industry of the twenty-first century is advancing at a rapid pace with great emphasis on lightweight structures, alternative energy sources, high efficiency powertrains, intelligent control systems, lower emissions, robust design and manufacturing, as well as improved comfort and safety. You gain a good grounding in the fundamentals of engineering, looking at topics including engineering thermodynamics, engineering mathematics, and material and manufacturing processes. You will learn to think creatively with a broad scope of knowledge, in order to tackle ITS engineering challenges in a multi-disciplinary environment. The UK automotive industry is historically known for highly innovative engineering, with various technical centres of excellence recently set up by global car manufacturers and suppliers. The university’s proximity to some of the largest automotive and manufacturing companies in Canada provides many opportunities for work placements.
Your investigation will draw upon existing engineering knowledge, apply advanced engineering techniques, allow you to draw your own conclusions supported by your findings and enable you to present your results in a professional manner. Students are educated to have scientific systematic approach in solving engineering problems, sound engineering base, life-long learning habits and research abilities.
Peter has a double bachelor degree in aerospace engineering and business administration from RMIT. Our graduates are well equipped for careers in a range of industries, especially automotive sectors including • manufacturing • design • research and development • production. Graduates from our Automotive Engineering degree work with manufacturers, tier one and tier two suppliers and specialist enterprises in the automotive and motorsport sectors. Principal manufacturing processes used for engineering materials within a context of the structure-property-processing relationship will be covered in detail.
For example, graduates have found jobs as engine calibration engineers, chassis designers, test and development engineers, engine designers or as automotive component design engineers. Set up near the Nevers/Magny-Cours F1 circuit, the student will visit & work on innovative projects with the motorsport SMEs & big automotive manufacturing companies, consultant organisations as well as suppliers. You’ll benefit from working in world-class specialist facilities for different aspects of automotive engineering. This degree offers a broad coverage of automotive systems engineering and related subjects.
The School of Engineering and Technology also operate an open access laboratory, and computer policy, that will help students complete coursework and assignments, at a scheduled pace and on time. From high-impact research and collaboration with industry, RMIT will help you gain all the practical skills required to enter the mechanical and automotive engineering industries. This is achieved through good project management, and by applying proven principles to a real engineering problem.
