Course summary

Overview

Electric and Hybrid Electric Vehicles constitute a modern and timely area in engineering, one expected to expand very quickly in the next few years.

Climate change and the consequent need to reduce CO2 emissions has progressively led to major advances in many modern developments of power engineering such as in photovoltaics, wind turbines and biofuels. The next step, which strongly affects our daily lives, is transportation. Electric vehicles minimise pollution whilst increasing power efficiency. Moreover, areas such as autonomous vehicles and smart transportation grids are beginning to become reality. As a result, the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee has recommended the government develop EV-specific qualifications for mechanics and engineers.

Coventry has a long history in the automotive and transport industries. Coventry University plays a significant role in shaping the future of modern transportation and has been a valuable partner in various projects and collaborations with industry and academia in the area of transportation, with significant experience and technical know-how. Furthermore, the Institute for Future Transport and Cities research centre has been established by Coventry University to organise and promote state-of-the-art research activities in the technological field of clean transportation.

Our postgraduate course in 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.

This course is accredited and recognised by the following bodies: As part of this course you will undertake a professional development which is currently accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI).

Course information

This course seeks to provide a postgraduate education covering the main theoretical and practical aspects of the field.

The overall aim of the course is to:

  • Provide a deep and comprehensive understanding of the current electric/hybrid electric vehicles technology, concepts and challenges.
  • Develop academic and practical skills in electric power related areas such as electrical machines and drives, power electronics and batteries, covering all aspects of the vehicle’s powertrain.
  • Develop a solid background on vehicle electronics, signal processing and communications needs and challenges.

Career prospects

Electrification of transportation is one of the most rapidly expanding markets, while manufacturers are seeking appropriately educated engineers to cover the needs in all aspects of electrical and electronic engineering focusing on electric vehicles.
