Progressive, technology-led companies are looking for people with both the practical engineering skills and the management skills to drive productivity and profitability.
With the advent of intelligent vehicles on the horizon of technical advancements, the automotive industry is facing a developmental challenge. How do we develop a robust technical infrastructure to support the anticipated explosive growth in smart vehicular functions, communications systems and driverless cars? This demands a comprehensive understanding of the technology and a bottom-up approach ensuring robustness and dependability of Electronics, Communications (e.g. V-2-V, V-2-I) and Control Systems.
Through this MSc in Smart, Connected and Autonomous Vehicles, we aim to address the knowledge-gap in the areas of machine learning, automated control strategies, connectivity, and communication infrastructure, cyber-security protocols, emerging automotive networks and robust automotive embedded systems within the context of smart, connected and autonomous vehicles.
We have an established legacy of leading automotive research in collaboration with industry. Our unique experimental facilities enable academics and industry practitioners to work together and include:
• 3xD (Drive-in Driver-in-the-loop Driving) simulator facility
• Fully-functional complete vehicle electrical/electronic system (labcar)
• Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) facilities
• National Automotive Innovation Centre (NAIC)
This MSc programme has extensive industrial support with the Industry Advisory Board consisting of Jaguar Land Rover (JLR), RDM and other industrial stakeholders.
