Vehicle testing at MIRA Technology Institute
Unique to the Automotive Engineering course at Loughborough, our students take part in a week-long vehicle testing course at the Motor Industry Research Association (MIRA) proving ground. Helping to gain a more rounded understanding of the subject, students get the opportunity to test their theoretical understanding in a series of practical tests on production vehicles, including: straight-line performance, braking, noise and vibration, and a vehicle aerodynamic study.
