About the course
Low carbon vehicle technologies are at the cutting edge of innovation within the automotive industry - one of several exciting areas of study for students of this BEng course.
This programme develops the key technical and managerial skills that graduates need to excel within a fast-moving industry, through a curriculum designed to give a good balance between fundamental mechanical engineering subjects (including maths and engineering science) and the applied engineering disciplines (such as vehicle design and performance).
We have one of the largest and most active engine research groups in the UK and strong links with industry to provide a vibrant, commercially-focused environment for our students' learning.

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 main challenge for these engineering centres is to design, develop and manufacture the next generation of road vehicles capable of providing improved environmental impact whilst maintaining acceptable vehicle performance, reliability and cost.
The overall aim of Brunel's programme is to provide our graduates with excellent understanding of the fundamentals which, coupled with in-depth knowledge of the technical workings of current and future automotive systems, will allow them to become future technical or managerial leaders.
