What you'll learn

Through studying MSc Electric Vehicle Engineering, you will learn knowledge and skills to design, develop and deploy electrification of conventional mobility solutions. This new course addresses the demands of the industry and the rapid shift towards electrically or electronically controlled autonomous digital systems, smart communication devices, automation and robotics, and also machines that are controlled remotely via smart technology using green energy resources.

At the heart of your studies will be mechanisms of smart electronics that are fed with data from sensors to detect position, orientation, and visual or audio signals. The systems that you will learn to design extend to electrical machines and drives, power electronics and batteries, and all aspects of the vehicle's powertrain.

How you'll learn

All modules include coursework, for which you will have opportunities to apply your knowledge to engineering projects based on real-life scenarios. The coursework will include analysis and design projects, research reports, group and seminar presentations and a research dissertation project.

You will also attend lectures, seminars and tutorials and you will work both individually and in groups.

To support the hands-on nature of this course, we have an impressive range of facilities. Our modern, well-equipped laboratories are open to students all day and include dedicated labs. We also have superb computer facilities and the very latest design and key software.

Expert feedback and support are always on offer from our dedicated team of academics, all experts in their particular disciplines.

Our MSc courses are some of the most flexible around. Engineers employed in the industry have found that the part-time model can easily be tailored to suit their personal requirements.

About the industrial placement year

This course is also available as a two-year master's with an industrial placement year. The industrial placement is designed to address the demands of the profession and give students a competitive edge when it comes to their careers. The industrial placement component is for a duration of an academic year, i.e., normally 30 weeks including a minimum of  24 weeks of delivery time. It starts after students have successfully completed the first year of study, i.e., all the taught modules and the dissertation component of the MSc course which together form 180 credits. Please refer to the course specification for the summary of the course structure and further information.

Students on the MSc with Placement courses must pass all taught modules of their respective course plus dissertation to gain 180 credits before they become eligible to progress to the next stage and undertake an industrial placement. Students on the MSc course with placement will also normally be required to fulfil the 80% attendance requirement (on all modules) to be eligible to progress to the industrial placement. Students unable to meet the above requirements to progress successfully will normally be moved to the one-year full-time version of the course and their student visa, if any, will be curtailed accordingly.

It is ultimately your responsibility to secure your placement and the University cannot guarantee placements. The University will offer guidance and support and recommend students to many of our industrial partners who have expressed strong support and interest in the programme.

During the industrial placement period, you will undertake an internship within a partner organisation (or by means of alternative arrangements such as projects led by industry and carried out on campus) and complete a zero-credit Industrial Placement Module.

There are additional fees for the placement module (in the second year of the course), in addition to the fees for the taught modules and dissertation paid in the first year.

How you will be assessed

We assess you through a mixture of coursework, design drawings, oral examinations, your research dissertation and an end of term exam. You will be supported throughout your journey by timely feedback and support from your academic advisor and other support structure.
