Course content

Our Automotive Systems Engineering MSc programme aims to provide those of you with an interest in the automotive industry with knowledge and technical expertise in a wide range of automotive disciplines.

The programme was created in partnership with companies such as the Ford Motor Company and Jaguar Land Rover.

We have a strong and growing research programme with world-class research activities and facilities. We have four major research groups working across the technologies of automotive and aeronautical engineering. Each group works on a variety of research topics, ranging from the development of new low emissions combustion systems for gas turbine engines, through to fundamental investigations into the operation of hydrogen powered fuel cells.

The programme is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (towards Chartered status).

A key element of our Automotive Systems Engineering MSc programme is the opportunity for you to access the vehicle proving ground facilities at Horiba MIRA Ltd near Nuneaton. In addition, you will have use of MATLAB and Simulink software for technical computation.
