The Automotive Engineering Program of Study provides the opportunity for students to gain a deep understanding in a particular automotive engineering discipline. A-level subjects: Grade C or above in Mathematics plus a pass in one of the following subjects: Biology; Chemistry; Computing/Computer Science; Design and Technology; Electronics; Engineering; ICT; Further Maths; Music Technology; Physics; Statistics.
While states set their own requirements, the path to licensure typically involves graduating from an ABET-accredited program, passing two exams administered by the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying and gaining the appropriate amount of work experience.
Skilled automotive engineers are required to meet the ever-increasing demands on high-quality individual mobility and transportation of people and goods, especially when considering global warming, environmental challenges and not least the vision of zero accidents.
Engineers continue to wring efficiency and mass out of their latest electrified propulsion systems with the aim of mainstreaming the technology. An understanding of social, business, industrial, and human aspects as a complement to their engineering background. CU-ICAR is located at the midpoint of the Charlotte-to-Atlanta I-85 corridor, which is home to hundreds of automotive industries and suppliers and two-thirds of the nation’s racing teams. The students will also consider a range of modelling techniques in solving fundamental problems in mechanical engineering. You will gain knowledge and analytical skills to design and manufacture automotive components. The Society of Automotive Engineers offers continuing education opportunities for professionals in the field.
An introduction to fundamental knowledge of how to use CFD software to analyse the external flow dynamics, as well as the future development of automotive systems and technologies will be considered. Automotive engineering is a branch of vehicle engineering which incorporates mechanical, electrical, electric and safety elements. Among our engineering and technology graduates who are in employment within six months of graduating, 90% are in graduate level jobs (source: Unistats 2015). Year 3 comprises core engineering subjects and specialist advanced automotive modules, plus two project modules.
