Automotive and Autonomous Vehicle Technology - University of Salford

Electric, connected, driverless vehicles are arriving to revolutionise our mobility. As transport takes a new turn, be out in front with this UK-first degree in autonomous vehicle technology at Salford. With a shortage of hybrid, EV and autonomous vehicle engineers, and such huge industry potential, our MEng (Hons) Automotive and Autonomous Vehicle degree will prime you ready to shape transport’s brave new world. Few objects shaped the 20th Century like the mass-produced car. Yet, as more people migrate to cities, artificial intelligence connects our world and sustainability becomes a priority, the 21st Century is ready for something new. Our ground-breaking course will equip you with technical knowledge, expert engineering skills, and ethical governance, ready to design and deliver the next-generation of vehicles. Delivered over four with integrated master’s – this multi-disciplinary degree blends Salford’s areas of expertise, including mechanical engineering, acoustics, computer and data science, electronics and robotics. This approach enables you to explore a wide range of topics, from vehicle design to AI control systems to cyber security and ethical risk. You’ll get hands-on with our world-class laboratories, plus our new vehicle technology hub, built exclusively for this course. Learning takes place in our parkland campus, minutes from Manchester, voted the UK’s most liveable city in 2018*, and recently announced by Jaguar Land Rover as a hub for connected technologies for its future vehicles. We’re already pioneering research in vehicle-to-grid technology, AI and robotics. Now, we’re building a UK centre of excellence for next-generation vehicles, featuring our own NAVYA autonomous shuttle vehicle. Salford has strong automotive industry connections and we advocate real-world learning. During your studies, you can get involved in the GreenPower challenge, or join our Formula Salford Racing society. You can also take a placement year to apply what you’ve learnt and develop further skills, adding ‘with professional experience’ to your final degree award. **Features** - Advance your knowledge of hybrid, electric and autonomous vehicle system and design, with focus on vibration, control engineering, emissions and design - Explore the ethics behind driverless systems and consider the cyber security risks - Understand autonomous vehicles operation and how to analyse performance - Develop knowledge of control theory and control engineering, to create dynamic representations of both open-loop and closed-loop systems. - Graduate with a masters' level degree *The Economist’s Global Liveability Index 2018
