Technology, Design and Environment Department of Mechanical Engineering and Mathematical Sciences The MSc Automotive Engineering provides an opportunity for in-depth study into the engineering that enables and drives forward this vital and world-wide industry. The key components of the course cover: design, with a focus on vehicle chassis and performance sustainability reliability aerodynamics and issues of comfort like noise, vibration and harshness. Oxford Brookes University has been running degree courses in Automotive Engineering, in partnership with local industry, for about 15 years. We have many links with major the BMW plant in Oxford and other local businesses. As well as the traditional aspects of motor car design and manufacture, we have lively and well-funded research programmes in areas of current concern such as vehicle end-of-life issues, and modern composite materials. We also have a growing involvement in electric vehicles. Teaching is based in our purpose-designed engineering building on the Wheatley Campus. Course Content The course is structured around three time periods: Semester 1 runs from September to December, Semester 2 from January to May, and the summer period completes the year until the beginning of September. To qualify for a master's degree you must pass the compulsory modules, one of two alternative-compulsory modules and one optional module, along with the Dissertation and Research and Study Methods. Compulsory modules: ? Advanced Chassis Engineering will give you a thorough understanding of the relevant theoretical and practical considerations associated with tyres, straight-line braking and acceleration together with ride and handling of a vehicle. ? Performance Vehicle Design is a group research and development project on a topic relevant to Vehicle Engineering. ? Sustainable Vehicle Engineering presents the concepts of sustainability and applies them to issues facing vehicle engineering and transport, such as the manufacturing processes, carbon foot-printing, materials of construction and choice of powertrain. ? Advanced Engineering Management provides you with an understanding of the management skills and knowledge that are important in engineering industries. Alternative-compulsory modules (you must pass at least one of these) ? Noise, Vibration and Harshness looks at the analysis, quantification, characterization and diagnosis of the noise, vibration and harshness of automotive components and assemblies. ? Vehicle Crash Engineering will give you an understanding of material, component and structural behaviour when subjected to medium to high impact events. This includes the design, testing and modelling of motorsport and automotive vehicles with regard to crash worthiness. Optional modules (you pass one of these, unless you take both alternative-compulsory modules above) ? Advanced Vehicle Aerodynamics focuses on the problem of how to design vehicle shapes that produce desirable or acceptable flow characteristics. ? Engineering Reliability and Risk Management covers the principles and techniques for improving the reliability of engineering components and systems, predicting their life and managing technical risk. ? Advanced Materials Engineering and Joining Technology looks at the detailed processing and design of advanced materials for engineering products. The significance of the properties and composition of materials is explored in relation to the selection of joining processes and optimising joint design, for the manufacture of high-performance engineering products and structures. ? CADCAM is a master's level module that develops skills in using state-of-the-art design and manufacturing software. ? Advanced Powertrain Engineering provides an understanding of areas such as powertrain system requirements, energy flow in the driveline, engine and powertrain modelling concepts for evaluating the performance of Powertrain systems. ? Advanced Strength of Components is concerned wi
