Course content

Environmental legislation is driving the automotive industry to meet emissions targets; innovative technologies are needed now, more than ever, to achieve this.

The course is ideally suited to those aspiring to become research managers and technology leaders within the strategically important areas of vehicle electrification and sustainability. Through your studies, you will develop the management skills, technical awareness, and vision to assess different technology options within the context of environmental legislation and consumer expectations for vehicle quality, reliability, and performance.

The course design mirrors the System Engineering V-cycle used for product development in industry and consists of four layers. Course participants begin working at Layer 1: Stakeholder Motivations (Global, legislative, customer etc.) and progress through Layer 2: Vehicle, and Layer 3: Systems, before studying at Layer 4: Component engineering. Alongside this progression, there are additional supporting modules covering industry tools and techniques applicable at all layers and to manage the design life-cycle itself.

Throughout the year, you will gain a holistic understanding of the different technology options and methods for design, system integration, and verification that will drive the market introduction of new energy efficient vehicles. You will develop the skills to design and evaluate the next generation of automotive products that have a lower environmental impact than conventional vehicles. You will learn the latest innovations in research, technology management, and leadership that are pre-requisite for career progression within the international automotive industry.
