This Masters programme will develop your knowledge and skills in practical electrical engineering aspects of transportation systems, with a particular focus on automotive and rail vehicles, and on power system infrastructure. Graduates of this programme will have a clear understanding of what is needed to design, build and operate these electrical transport systems and will be in demand by organisations world-wide in vehicle design, development and manufacture, and in the infrastructure to support electric transportation systems.
The course will be provided jointly by the University of Birmingham and the University of Nottingham, bring together expertise from both institutions and enabling students to access excellence from two research-intensive universities. Students will choose whether to base their studies from Birmingham or Nottingham: this choice will then inform the supervision of the research project which takes place during the summer period. The Autumn term will be taught at Birmingham and the Spring term, in Nottingham; the timetable will give the flexibility needed for part-time learning or for single modules to be studied as Continuing Professional Development
This is a unique, dual-site course, developed and delivered under the Midlands Energy Graduate School and the research-led Midlands Energy Consortium. Students will benefit from electrical engineering expertise from two leading UK universities, studying Semester 1 modules at the University of Birmingham and Semester 2 modules at the University of Nottingham, which allows for flexibility for part-time study.
Study will be undertaken on the electrical engineering of transportation, various transport systems and technologies, the study of motion, power systems and energy storage systems. Research projects may be taken at the student’s registered university or, where possible, in industry
