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.
Commercial products today combine many technologies, and industry is increasingly interdisciplinary. This course is designed to meet this demand, giving you an interdisciplinary knowledge base in modern electronics including power, communications, control and embedded processors.
You’ll develop a broad grasp of a range of interlocking disciplines, combining core modules developing your practical lab skills and industry awareness with a range of optional modules that allow you to focus on topics that suit your interests or career plans. Next-generation silicon technologies, electric drives and generating electric power from renewable sources are among the topics you could study.
This course will appeal to people with a broad interest in electronics and communications, as well as those who are interested in modern communications techniques, radio propagation, cellular mobile systems, control systems, power and drives, and modern system on-chip technology.
Our School is an exciting and stimulating environment where you’ll learn from leading researchers in specialist facilities. These include our Keysight Technologies wireless communications lab, as well as labs for embedded systems, power electronics and drives.
Depending on your choice of project, you may have use of our Terahertz photonics lab, ultrasound and bioelectronics labs, class 100 semiconductor cleanroom, traffic generators and analysers, FPGA development tools, sensor network test beds.
The School also contains facilities for electron-beam lithography and ceramic circuit fabrication – and a III-V semiconductor molecular beam epitaxy facility. The Faculty is also home to the £4.3 million EPSRC National Facility for Innovative Robotic Systems, set to make us a world leader in robot design and construction.
The deployment of power electronic converters and electrical machines continues to grow at a rapid rate in sectors such as hybrid and all-electric vehicles, aerospace, renewables and advanced industrial automation.
In many of these applications, high performance components are combined into sophisticated motion control and energy management systems. This course will give you a rigorous and in-depth knowledge of the key component technologies and their integration into advanced systems.
Many go to work in industry as engineers for large national and international companies, including ARUP, Ericsson Communications, HSBC, Rolls-Royce, Jaguar Land Rover and Intel Asia Pacific.
This is a research environment. What we teach is based on the latest ideas. The work you do on your course is directly connected to real-world applications.
We work with government research laboratories, industrial companies and other prestigious universities. Significant funding from UK research councils, the European Union and industry means you have access to the best facilities.
You’ll be taught by academics who are leaders in their field. The 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) puts us among the UK top five for this subject. Our courses are centred around finding solutions to problems, in lectures, seminars, exercises and through project work.
All of our MSc courses are accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), except the MSc(Eng) Advanced Electrical Machines, Power Electronics and Drives and MSc(Eng) Bioengineering: Imaging and Sensing. We are seeking accreditation for these courses.
You’ll learn through research-led teaching, lectures, laboratories, seminars, tutorials and coursework exercises. Assessment is by examinations, coursework and a project dissertation with poster presentation.
