This course aims to:

  • Develop automotive design engineers skilled in the use of advanced computer modeling and simulation techniques.
  • Enable you to develop the skills required to design and analyse components and systems within the automotive environment.
  • Introduce modern computer-based tools used within the industry and give you the opportunity to apply them to realistic problems.
  • Develop engineering skills including problem-solving abilities, practical competencies, critical appraisal and communication skills.
Key Facts
  • This course is aimed at modern automotive design in areas such as powertrain, body and chassis, suspension dynamics and NVH.
  • During the course you will be using sophisticated computer tools, such as Adams mechanisms, computational fluid dynamics, finite element analysis and solid modelling to solve real engineering problems.
  • You will develop skills in the use of virtual reality as a visualisation and solution tool for the representation and behavioural simulation of components and systems within vehicles. The tools are mapped onto a basic underpinning of theoretical and practical aspects to support their applications.
