About Automotive Engineering at Anglia Ruskin University ARU

Can you design the cars and vehicles of tomorrow? Whether you want to improve performance, lower carbon emissions, develop the perfect electric car or make vehicles safer, our four-year MEng Automotive Engineering course will get you there. Study in Chelmsford, and work towards Chartered Engineer (CEng) status when you graduate.

Engineering is all about taking a product or system and looking at how it can be improved, whether it is in the manufacturing, the design, or even the materials. Our new MEng Automotive Engineering course has been created to focus on project-based learning, allowing you to take your in-class theory and apply it in a hands-on project module that will run throughout the year.

You will study alongside other students in the various areas of mechanical engineering, specialising within automotive engineering in your final year and in certain modules throughout your course.

You will learn through a wide range of lab sessions, exploring manufacturing, 3D printing, thermodynamics, dynamics, and structural analysis so you can analyse, calculate, model, and experience your proposed concepts. As a part of your project based learning you will undertake group work where you will be in a team of multi-disciplined students from across the different areas of mechanical engineering. This integrated learning will allow you to develop skills that area invaluable to future employers, including analytical and creative problem-solving skills. You'll also benefit from dedicated support from our experienced staff, who are both experienced professionals from industry and expert researchers.

Our course leads you through computer based advanced design, simulation and modelling practice in various topics including computational engineering, fluid dynamics, stress analysis, and industrial management.

You'll benefit from using our workshop and laboratory facilities including CAD/CAM and engineering computer modelling centre, industrial-scale CNC milling and lathe machines, metal and plastic rapid prototyping machines, scanning electronic microscope, Instron bi-axial fatigue-testing machine, tensile-testing machine, material-preparation facilities, welding equipment, electronic testing and measuring equipment such as oscilloscopes and signal generating and testing facilities, wind tunnel, air compressors, steam engine and many more laboratory facilities used during course and in individual and group major projects.

What is the difference between a BEng and an MEng course?

A BEng course will enable to you apply for Incorporated Engineer (IEng) status at the end of your course. To apply for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status you will also need to complete a Masters degree.

A four-year MEng course is a three-year undergraduate degree with a one-year Masters degree in one course. On completing an MEng course you are able to apply for CEng status.

January intake students will complete Year 1 between January and August (Trimester 2 & 3), however, Year 2 and 3 will be completed during trimester 1 & 2 between September and May. This means January intake students will only take a one-month summer break in Year 1 and will start Year 2 in September the same year they started the course. Therefore students are expected to graduate this MEng course in 3.5 years.
