This course is designed to further your knowledge of the key aspects related to the automotive sector, with a focus on engineering of Connected Autonomous Vehicles (CAV). Content has been selected with industry demands in mind, aiming to provide you with desirable skills including optimisation techniques, functional safety of systems, understanding the challenges of CAV as well as CAV application in collaboration with our research institutes.
It aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of design processes and the ability to generate innovative designs for products, systems, components or processes. You will have the chance to develop, learn and apply new theories, concepts and methods in novel and challenging situations, analysing emerging technologies, analytical techniques and assessing their limitations. We aim to equip you with the skills and knowledge to analyse and assess commercial risks, management and business practices associated with the introduction of innovation in new situations and environments.
In the modern world of vehicle design and manufacture, companies require engineers who are highly qualified and possess specialised skills. If you have an interest in innovative road vehicles and a mechanical or automotive background, this course could provide you with technical and managerial skills and expertise that are highly sought after by the automotive industry.
This highly focused course has been developed in consultation with our impressive network of industry partners, including Jaguar Land Rover and Aston Martin. It also draws on the industrial experience of academics and research activity which covers the major specialisms such as functional safety, optimisation techniques, propulsion systems, vehicle dynamics, human factors, connected and autonomous vehicles simulation and testing
We aim to equip you with the know-how to design and test vehicles that are more fuel efficient, refined and safe, by studying industry desired principles of design, operation, performance, safety and optimisation of automotive systems, as required to engineer a Connected Autonomous Vehicle. This could lead to a career as an automotive engineering specialist in a wide range of engineering, manufacturing, and service organisations.
To apply to this course you should have a minimum 2:2 honours degree in an appropriate engineering discipline such as Mechanical, Automotive, Motorsport, or Aerospace Engineering. However, entry qualifications are flexible and applications are welcomed from or other technical disciplines, mature candidates and those with industrial experience, these will be reviewed by the course director.
Each application will be considered on its merits and the final decision will be made by the course director. For further information on the type of subjects and industrial experience that would qualify, please contact us..
