Advanced Automotive Propulsion Systems PhD

4 to 7 years integrated, starting in March 2020

Combine distinctive training with doctoral research in automotive propulsion to equip you to become the research and technology leaders of the future.

Taking an interdisciplinary approach, you'll generate new and holistic ideas in automotive propulsion. You'll develop detailed knowledge in a specific subject area but you'll do this within the larger context of propulsion systems. This gives you the depth and breadth of knowledge needed to collaborate with professionals across disciplines in the automotive industry. Your training will help prepare you to work with the future engineers, scientists, policy makers and thought leaders in propulsion systems.

Subject areas include:

  • mathematics and data science
  • mechanical engineering
  • electrical engineering
  • environment, emissions and sustainability
  • biology and chemistry
  • chemical engineering
  • social science and psychology
  • business and management
