Building on the University’s strong links with industry and run by internationally recognised academics, our BEng and MEng Automotive Engineering courses will give you the specialised expertise you need to become a professional engineer in the automotive industry, or equally provide you with the right skill set to take up a career in motorsport.
What you will study
Our unique BEng and MEng Automotive Engineering courses focus on new and emerging sustainable automotive technologies (such as electric vehicles). Throughout your course, you will have the opportunity to use state-of-the-art design and development tools such as computer aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) methods, applying these to vehicle development.
As an integral part of your course you will get involved in Formula Student – Europe’s most established student motorsport competition, in which Surrey has successfully competed for many years. This will give you a valuable opportunity to apply your knowledge to real-life problems and gain hands-on, practical experience.
You can apply to study for either a BEng or MEng (Masters of Engineering). The MEng builds on the BEng programme with a masters year, and is a direct route to a masters qualification. Depending on your progress, you may have the option to switch to a BEng or MEng during your studies.
