Course overview

This postgraduate course on Electrical Automotive Engineering aims to provide the expertise required to meet the modern transportation market demands. Carefully planned, it consists of a balanced mix between electric power, electronics and communications. Our vision is to create experienced and specialised engineers who will be highly sought after by the electrical automotive engineering market.


As the area of Electrical Automotive Engineering is under continuous development by manufacturers, industry and academia, it is necessary to enhance this MSc course with strong research elements and deliver a research- oriented teaching and culture. For this purpose, academics and professionals from overseas and other UK institutions are invited to deliver seminars and lectures on timely research topics and advancements in the area of Electrical Automotive Engineering. Furthermore, the students will benefit from research-oriented individual projects and will be encouraged to participate in National and International Conferences and Workshops to present their works.


The delivery of this course will consist of a balance between theory, simulations and laboratory testing creating an ideal teaching and learning environment. The aim is to cultivate not only a strong foundation in electrical automotive engineering but also critical and original thinking. For this purpose, our students will benefit from our high level teaching environment and infrastructure, practical hands on laboratory equipment and specialised modern simulation tools adopted by industry nowadays. The teaching activities are partially industry and research focused to motivate and promote engineering development and originality among our students.
