About the course

This Master's course offers senior vehicle developers an in-depth technical training for the research and development of next-generation low-carbon or non-carbon vehicles.

The course focuses on new and emerging sustainable automotive technologies such as hybrid electric vehicles, battery electric vehicles and fuel-cell vehicles.

Throughout the course, you have the opportunity to use state-of-the-art design tools, as well as advanced development and simulation tools, to explore vehicle development, design, calibration and optimisation.

Our automotive engineering laboratory suite includes an engine test bed with full instrumentation; two advanced automotive engine demonstrators; various test rigs for vehicle aerodynamics, materials and engineering structure; and a machining workshop. You also have access to 3D printers and a CAE lab.

Why choose this course?

  • The laboratory suite allows you to further develop your hands-on skills using a range of high-spec equipment for electric vehicles
  • You can access an additional range of engineering facilities within the University’s recently built STEM building
  • Learn from an experienced, research-active academic team
  • Benefit from interdisciplinary consideration of alternative energy systems
  • By closely collaborating with local automotive and motor-sport companies, you contribute to real-world solutions to vehicle R&D

A wide variety of teaching styles will be used throughout this course. The most important aspect will be that of a student-centred approach, and the University will encourage students through relevant guidance to become an independent thinker who can take responsibility for their own learning, and adapt to a wide variety of different situations within the context of Automotive Engineering.

The course makes use of traditional lectures and practical sessions as well as encouraging students to engage in various scenarios such as managing students own projects and achieving professional output through teamwork.

Course unit content such as lecture slides or practical sheets are made available electronically through the University’s virtual learning environment.

To aid curriculum and assessment design, the University uses the FHEQ credit level descriptors as points of reference for determining progression in terms of level of demand and complexity and the degree of learner autonomy involved in specific learning opportunities.
