Our MSc Race Car Aerodynamics emphasises the fundamentals of aerodynamics and centres on the analysis, modelling and measurement of turbulent flows associated with high performance race cars. It suits graduates or qualified individuals from engineering, scientific and mathematical backgrounds wishing to specialise in aerodynamics for highspeed vehicles.
Compulsory modules: Applications of CFD; Experimental Methods for Aerodynamics; Race Car Aerodynamics; Race Car Design/ GDP; Turbulence: Physics and Modelling; MSc Research Project
Optional modules: two from: Advanced Computational Methods I; Numerical Methods; Advanced Computational Methods II; Automobile Systems; Automotive Propulsion; Design, Search and Optimisation; Flow Control; Systems Reliability; Wing Aerodynamics
The Joint Master Degree in Sustainable Automotive Engineering (JMDSAE) provides courses in the field of Low Carbon Automotive Engineering and more largely in Electromobility. The partner institutions have the shared aim of promoting strong cooperation in order to implement the JMDSAE. In particular the objectives are:
The JMDSAE consists of four semesters including an internship and a Master thesis.
Semester 1 & 2
University of Antwerp Term 1: September to December
AUTOMOTION AND ENGINE TECHNOLOGIES
Loughborough University Term 2: January to March
University of Bordeaux Term 3: April to June
University of Deusto Term 3: April to June
Semester 3: September to January
Semester 4: February to June
The European Commission estimates 12 million jobs within the European automotive industry. The industry also has strong economic connections to many other developing industrial sectors. There is therefore already a strong and growing need for a qualified workforce in this domain in Europe and throughout the world.
Graduates are expertly qualified to work in R&D departments that focus on the development of hybrid/electrical vehicles as well as parts of these vehicles as powertrains.
