Sustainability is becoming more and more important in the automotive industry. Car manufacturers and suppliers are considering how to implement sustainable processes in the development and manufacture of new vehicles. At Sussex, we cover many aspects of sustainable automotive engineering. On this course, you’ll: gain fundamental engineering knowledge including materials, manufacturing processes, mechanics and electrical circuits, learn CAD modelling, programming and numerical modelling, explore low-emission vehicle propulsion, new-generation vehicle technology, electrical drive systems and vehicle dynamics. This research feeds directly into our teaching. You’ll benefit from our work in the Dynamics, Control, and Vehicle research group. Research projects include automotive on-board diagnostics systems, intelligent controllers and autonomous vehicles. You’ll study in our Future Technologies Labs that incorporate computer suites and new automation/robotics facilities. There’s also a dedicated manufacturing lab with facilities such as CNC machines and 3-D printers. In our Formula Student projects, you’ll get the chance to be part of a team to design and build an electric single-seat racing car and enter it into a competition. During your time at Sussex, you’ll be supported by dedicated academic advisers, as well as a team of student mentors. In addition, you’ll benefit from our links to world-leading automotive companies. As a graduate, you’ll have the knowledge and skills to meet the challenges and changes in the automotive industry, including those related to sustainability.
