Our MSc course is for engineers who want to develop their knowledge further and specialise in automotive engineering and technologies. Exploring research and development in this sector, this course focuses on the design, performance and operation of automotive powertrains and vehicle systems. Students build on their existing engineering skills and apply them to the challenges of the automotive industry.
Students explore in-depth developments in low-carbon and sustainable powertrain and propulsion systems and the future technologies of vehicles. Industry needs innovative engineers who can create the next generation of vehicles, and this course is geared specifically towards equipping students with those skills.
Covering everything from downsizing internal combustion engines and turbo-charging small engines, to alternative fuels, hybrid vehicles and electric vehicles, our course draws on the specialist automotive research in our Department of Mechanical Engineering. Our students learn from academics with expertise in automotive engineering and low-carbon technologies. Their industrial collaborations and research activity feed into the teaching and learning experience.
