Course summary

Who is it for?

This course provides engineering, physics or mathematics graduates with the advanced skills which can be applied to the security, defence, marine, environmental and aerospace industries.

Why this course?

This course is unique in that it offers a combination of subjects much sought after in the autonomous vehicle industry and not covered in a single MSc course anywhere else. Successful graduates of our MSc course become conversant in key aspects of autonomy which places them at an advantage in today's competitive employment market.

The Autonomous Vehicle Dynamics and Control MSc course begins with the fundamentals of autonomous vehicle dynamics and control, and progresses to the core subjects of guidance and navigation, decision making, sensor fusion, data and information fusion, communication and networking. A choice of optional modules allows individual tailoring of these subjects to specialise in appropriate subject areas.

The taught part of the course is followed by individual research projects (IRPs) and the topic of each of the IRPs is provided by one of the member of the Industrial Advisory Board. The real-world relevance of the IRP topics is another unique feature of the MSc course and can be another effective differentiator in the job market.

Your career:

The industry-led education makes Cranfield graduates some of the most desirable all over the world for recruitment by companies competing in the autonomous vehicle market including:

  • BAE Systems,
  • Defence Science and Technology Laboratory,
  • MBDA,
  • Other companies from our Industrial Advisory Board.

Graduates from this course will be equipped with the advanced skills which could be applied to the security, defence, marine, environmental and aerospace industries. This approach offers you a wide range of career choices as an autonomous systems engineer, design engineer or in an operations role, at graduation and in the future. Others decide to continue their education through PhD studies available within Cranfield University or elsewhere.

Students can also exit with PGDip and PGCert awards.
