About Automotive Engineering, BEng (Hons) - at Harper Adams University

Automotive Engineering is a dynamic and expanding branch of engineering challenged to develop efficient, safe and environmentally sustainable vehicles that meet the needs of a growing and more mobile global population. 

Our course addresses the breadth of vehicle technologies and application with an additional focus on the off-highway vehicle sector which ranges from sports utility vehicles, to construction equipment, to defence vehicles, each of which produces further challenges to the automotive engineer. 

Students will learn about on-road vehicle systems and technologies plus specialist modules will ready our engineers for the additional challenges of the off-highway sector. You will develop your knowledge and engineering skills through contextualised modules and using specialist facilities such as our Soil Hall, Off-road Track, Applied Engineering Workshop and laboratories. There is a wide range of on and off-highway vehicles available for students to use as part of project work and there are also opportunities to get involved with cutting-edge research in autonomous and connected vehicles with Harper Adams’ Hands Free Farm. 

You won’t have to wait to put your learning into practice – you will be a member of a team of engineers from day one engaged with real-world scenarios and projects. Assessment typically includes live industry projects, creating and exhibiting new products, creative portfolios, and applying specialist engineering tools and techniques.  

Supported by an integrated placement year in industry, you will be primed for your future career using personal, technical and professional skills employers have identified with us as critical to your graduate employability in roles such as researching, designing and testing the next generation of vehicles and vehicle systems.
