Presentación

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.

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.


Requisitos

Applicants will be expected to hold (or be expecting to attain) a first degree with at least a good second class honours, or an equivalent qualification in an electrical engineering discipline. Evidence of relevant personal, professional and educational experience may also be taken into account.
