The strategic success of any industrial player in this area would depend on a ready availability of a skilled workforce within high level technical competencies, specifically catered for the automotive environment.
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.
