MSc Automotive Engineering

University of Bath

Course Description

The MSc programme produces graduates with the technical and managerial skills and expertise that are highly sought after by the automotive industry, with particular focus on the design, performance and operation of automotive powertrains and vehicle systems. This MSc programme is firmly rooted in our international research standing in the area of high efficiency diesel engines, advanced transmissions and low carbon vehicle technologies. The first semester offers a range of fundamental and more advanced lecture courses covering the analysis, simulation and performance of internal combustion engines, transmissions, vehicle dynamics and automotive systems which are key elements in the design and manufacture of modern vehicles and powertrains. The second semester offers a unique learning environment, focusing on your career development as a business manager. Through units delivered in partnership with the School of Management, and industrial design group work, you will gain key skills and experience in commercialising new technology and understanding technology strategy and organisation. You will complete your MSc through an individual research project under the supervision of our eminent research and academic staff across the entire department, with a focus towards the Powertrain and Vehicle Research Centre (PVRC) and the Centre for Power Transmission and Motion Control. Typical project areas include experimental and analytical investigations of new turbocharger concepts, after treatment operation, alternative fuel performance as well as the control and calibration of advanced vehicle and powertrain systems. . By studying our MSc in Automotive Engineering you will: * Understand the vehicle design process and the operation and performance of important sub-systems * Analyse current and projected future environmental legislation and the impact this has on the design, operation and performance of automotive powertrain systems * Analyse in detail the operation and performance indicators of transmission systems, internal combustion engines and after treatment devices.
