Course content

Electric and Hybrid Electric Vehicles constitutes a modern and timely area in engineering and one expected to expand very quickly in the next few years.

Climate change and the consequent need to reduce CO2 emissions has progressively led to major advances in many modern developments of power engineering such as in photovoltaics, wind turbines, biofuels etc. The next step, which strongly affects our daily lives is transportation. Electric vehicles minimise pollution whilst increasing power efficiency. Moreover, areas such as autonomous vehicles and smart transportation grids are beginning to become reality. As a result, expertise in this demanding engineering field is in high demand in the transport industry.

Coventry has a long history in the automotive and transport industries, and Coventry University plays a significant role in shaping the future of modern transportation. Coventry University has been a valuable partner in various projects and collaborations with industry and academia in the area of transportation, with significant experience and technical know-how. Furthermore, the Future Transport and Cities Research Centre has been established in Coventry University to organise and promote state of the art research activities in the technological field of clean transportation.

Our postgraduate course on Electrical Automotive Engineering aims to provide the expertise required to meet the modern transportation market demands. Carefully planned, it consists of a balanced mix between electric power, electronics and communications. Our vision is to create experienced and specialised engineers who will be highly sought after by the electrical automotive engineering market.
