About Automotive Engineering, BEng (Hons), MEng (Hons) - at University of Leeds

The UK is leading the way in green transport with Electric Vehicles (EV) and Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAV). From 2035, all new vehicles sold in the UK must be electric, which means that the next generation of automotive engineers needs to be trained now to meet the needs of this rapidly changing industry. The development of hybrid, electric and autonomous vehicle technology to replace traditional internal combustion engines is already transforming the automotive engineering sector.

The key issues facing automotive engineers include designing sustainable hybrid and electric vehicles that meet increasing safety and performance standards and challenging cost-efficiency targets. As well as in-depth knowledge of mechanical engineering, specialist knowledge and skills are also needed to succeed in this sector. That's why you'll learn both traditional automotive engineering and electric, hybrid (BEng) and autonomous (MEng) vehicle technology. You'll also develop an awareness of the commercial issues that impact design and production processes.

Studying automotive engineering at Leeds will open up a whole world of opportunities for your career. You'll develop your abilities, knowledge and skills - and our close links with industry ensure that you'll be prepared to meet the most pressing needs of the automotive sector. From your first day you will be encouraged to join our Formula Student team, Leeds Gryphon Racing and engage in the development of an IC, electric or autonomous race car.
