You will develop skills in the use of virtual reality as a 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.
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.
This course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE).
