Program Description

Master in Sustainable Automotive Engineering (SAE)

The University of Warwick, Warwick Manufacturing Group WMG

This course is suited to those aspiring to become Research Managers, Operations Managers, Chief Engineers and Technology Leaders within the strategically important areas of vehicle electrification and sustainability. You will have the management skills, technical awareness, and vision to assess different technology options within the context of environmental legislation and consumer expectations for vehicle quality, reliability, and performance. WMG has an established legacy of leading automotive research in close collaboration with industry. Our experimental facilities enable academics and industry practitioners to work together to overcome the strategic challenges of battery design and integration, vehicle lightweighting, and digital validation.

We will provide you with

A holistic understanding of the different technology options and methods for design, system integration, and verification that will drive the market introduction of new energy efficient vehicles. You will develop the skills to design and evaluate the next generation of automotive products that have a lower environmental impact than conventional vehicles. You will learn the latest innovations in research, technology management, and leadership that are pre-requisite for career progression within the international automotive industry.

Course Structure

The course is modular; each student takes a combination of core and elective modules. 9 modules are studied and assessed in total. Modules consist of nominally 40 hours directed tuition in the form of lectures, seminars, group work, presentations, case studies and e-learning. This is covered in a full-immersion, intensive week. Modules are assessed by Post Module Assignment - this is typically a further 40 -60 hours of work. The taught modules account for 50% of the Master's degree. A major individual research project, submitted in the form of a dissertation accounts for the other 50%. This should take approximately 900 hours of study time. An oral examination is held upon completion.

Core modules for this MSc

  • Automotive Hybridisation and Electrification
  • Energy Storage and High Voltage Automotive Systems
  • Propulsion Technology for HEV Applications
  • Lightweight Materials and Structures
  • Systems Modelling and Simulation

You are then required to select four modules from our list of elective modules.

Please note: Our course and module content and schedule is continually reviewed and updated to reflect the latest research expertise at Warwick, so it is therefore very important that you check the website for the latest information before you apply and when you accept an offer.

Project

Leveraging the close partnerships that WMG has with key organisations within the automotive supply chain, it is envisaged that your project will have an industrial sponsor and be closely aligned with overcoming a real-world problem in the areas of vehicle electrification and sustainability. Many of the projects will feed directly into larger research programmes and will require you to liaise directly with senior academics, researchers, and industry partners.

After You Graduate

As an SAE graduate, you can expect to take a leadership role with a vehicle manufacturer or specialist supplier.
