This course is subject to validation.

Are you interested in how to make cars better, faster, safer, cleaner and more sustainable? The automotive industry, which includes successful manufacturers like Nissan, Honda and Jaguar Land Rover, needs engineers who can work on design, production, and research and development.

The first three years of the course, or four years if you undertake a year-long industrial placement, are the same as our BEng (Hons) Automotive Engineering. You’ll then complete a further year to gain your MEng. This final year continues the strong focus on automotive engineering.

Northumbria is ranked 3rd in the sector nationally for the sustained employment of Engineering and Technology graduates five years after graduation. (Longitudinal Education Outcomes (LEO) 2017)

You should apply for this course if you want to meet in full the academic requirements for becoming a Chartered Engineer, which is associated with higher salaries. Employers place particular value on graduates who, because they already have an MEng, don’t need to undertake postgraduate studies alongside their day-to-day work.

Throughout the course you’ll be tackling problems within a practical context. Our sustainable engineering agenda will ensure that you’ll be equipped to work ethically in a world that needs engineers to meet societal challenges.

Accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer.  The MEng fully meets the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements, for registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng).
