Brunel University London is a world top 100 engineering university. (Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings 2014/5.) We are professionally accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). Mechanical engineers deal with the design and production of the machines, systems and structures that are taken for granted in the modern world. The range and diversity of career choice is consequently tremendous. Our range of mechanical engineering courses is designed to meet the needs of industry and reflect our world'class research interests including: ' energy and environmental engineering ' internal combustion engines and their fuels ' materials and manufacturing. We're here to make sure you make the most of this wealth of engineering opportunity. Mechanical engineering with automotive design shares several of the vehicle design topics studied on our automotive and motorsport degrees. In recent years the UK automotive industry has invested heavily in CAD and new test facilities. This, coupled with the shift towards automated manufacture, is leading to the adoption of new materials technology. This course introduces you to these developments and to the field of automotive design as a whole.
