Facilities for students

Our department is now housed in a purpose built £14 million facility that includes some of the UK’s best aeronautical and automotive experimental equipment.

Equipping students with the knowledge and skills to form a career in industry underpins everything that we do. Supported by industry standard equipment and world class facilities, we aim to provide a state-of-the-art learning and teaching environment for our students.

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.
