Learning Outcomes

  • Apply a variety of methods, including mathematical analysis, computational modelling, or practical experiments, to solve automotive engineering related problems.
  • Use appropriate methods to pursue research or other detailed investigation of technical issues related with the discipline of automotive engineering.
  • Design solutions to unfamiliar problems, possibly involving other disciplines and their creativity to develop new and original ideas and methods.
  • Design and conduct analytic, modelling and experimental investigations, to critically evaluate data and draw conclusions.
  • Apply their knowledge and understanding for developing practical skills for solving problems, conducting investigations, and designing engineering devices and processes.
  • Recognise the wider, non-technical implications of engineering practice, ethical, environmental, commercial and industrial.
  • Evaluate the capabilities and limitations of existing and emerging technologies in the field of automotive engineering.
  • Demonstrate the ability to integrate knowledge from different branches, and handle complexity, and to understand applicable techniques and methods, their limitations and the non-technical implications of engineering practice.
  • Apply new and emerging technologies related to the field of automotive engineering.
  • Use diverse methods, such as technical reports and technical presentations to communicate effectively with the engineering community and with society at large.
