This MSc programme is designed for graduates from engineering and science backgrounds. It aims to develop your knowledge, understanding and skills in the field of low carbon transport engineering with a focus on the application of mechanical, materials and manufacturing engineering principles. The programme is also intended to provide you with greater depth of capability in land transport technology (eg automotive, rail, mass rapid transit) enabling you to understand the technical aspects associated with managing sustainable and innovative transport engineering projects and organisations.
It will equip you to enter employment as a professional engineer in the automotive, railway and transport industries (progressing on to Chartered Engineer or equivalent status) or to other professional careers.
