Modern vehicles are often taken for granted and yet they represent an incredibly complex and diverse set of disciplines. The automotive electronics engineer has to bring together real-time software, safety critical constraints, sensor electronics, control algorithms, human factors, legislation and ethics into a working package that satisfies multiple stakeholders.

The Ricardo engineering consultancy helped to develop this course, ensuring MSc students come away equipped with industry-relevant skills. Their continued involvement includes offering the use of pioneering industry equipment through the Ricardo Universities IC Engines research facility. They also help to cultivate future engineering talent, both locally and internationally.

On this MSc course you'll explore a range of topics including interconnected communication networks, entertainment systems, safety critical software, diagnostics, alternative fuels and hybrid technologies.

In the latest Research Assessment Exercise (RAE2008), our automotive engineering research group achieved an excellent rating, with 70 per cent of its research rated as internationally excellent or world leading, and 95 per cent deemed to have been internationally recognised.

Our reputation has enabled us to invest more in our facilities.

This MSc is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology on behalf of the Engineering Council as meeting the requirements for further learning for registration as a chartered engineer. Candidates must hold a CEng-accredited BEng or BSc(Hons) undergraduate degree to comply with full CEng registration requirements.

Course structure

The course starts in September. You will study four modules each term and will take exams after your Christmas and Easter vacations.

For each taught module you will have between three and four hours' contact with the lecturer each week, alongside further self-study tutorial and laboratory exercises requiring study outside of the class contact time.

After all eight taught modules have been completed you will then begin your individual project and masters dissertation stage. This final stage is full-time, but there are no classes during this phase, which ends in early September.

It is possible to study part-time study, by taking the modules at a slower rate. This can be tailored to fit around any personal or professional commitments that you may have. Please note, however, that there is no evening teaching so if you wish to study part-time then you will need to agree on study leave with your employer in order to attend the classes. The final project phase could be conducted at your place of work in some cases.

Syllabus

You will study eight modules and embark on an individual project. This project will form the basis of your dissertation.

Core modules:

Engineering with MATLAB
Sustainable Automotive Power Technology
Automotive Communication Systems
Embedded Processor Systems
Power Train Engineering
Sensors and Interfacing
Power Electronics and Actuators
An individual project on which you base your dissertation

Option modules:

Advanced Computer Systems
Secure Information Systems Engineering

Individual projects have included real-time power-train modelling for software in the loop testing, a smart grid system using electric vehicles as an energy storage resource and an experimental investigation of novel fuel injection and ignition systems for a spray-guided gasoline engine.

Our research labs

The Division of Engineering and Product Design’s research and teaching laboratories house a number of engine test cells in which world leading research is carried out. Although these labs centre on cylinders, pistons and valves they are surrounded by complex electronic equipment to control the mechanics and to monitor pressures, temperatures, chemistry and capture high speed events on computer for real-time and post-run analysis.

MSc students often carry out projects in these labs and make their contribution to research or commercial innovation. For details of these state of the art laboratories see Sir Harry Ricardo Laboratories.

Professor Stipidis and his team provide valuable state-of-the-art research into automotive communications architectures and also provide infrastructure for some of the laboratory exercises in the Automotive Communications Systems taught module.

Employability

This course serves as a training and proving ground for the next generation of researchers. It is ideal for those hoping to be employed as development or research engineers.

The MSc can also serve as the basis for further study at a doctoral level.

The nature of graduate work varies; it could be with OEM’s (Original Equipment Manufacturers) like Ford, General Motors, Jaguar Land Rover; it could be with consultants such as Ricardo, Lotus or AVL; or Tier One suppliers such as Delphi, Infineon or Denso.

MArch explores architecture that responds to the complex and changing context of architecture and urbanism and the transformations taking place in society. Read more
MArch explores architecture that responds to the complex and changing context of architecture and urbanism and the transformations taking place in society. Urban investigations and an awareness of the shifting conditions of the contemporary city with its differing social structures, geography, culture, climate, economics, energy consumption, technologies and urban patterns, will form the basis of the MArch studio research. Experimentation, critical reflection, debate and a diversity of approaches are encouraged through different practices and methods in order to locate and establish informed positions and skills.

Key benefits

- Based in one of the most culturally significant cities in Europe, the two-year Master of Architecture programme at the Belfast School of Architecture offers a distinctive, exciting and dynamic research-led learning experience leading to exemption from the ARB/RIBA part 2 examination.

- We provide a friendly and supportive learning environment to help you feel at home and make an easy transition to university life.

- We invest significantly in our facilities to provide the best learning experience. Our £250 million Belfast campus redevelopment represents a new chapter for Ulster, providing a state-of-the-art teaching and learning facility in the heart of the city.

Course detail

- Description -

The overall intention of Year 1 is to progress from discussing wider global architectural issues to then progressively focus on a very particular context where you can explore different interpretations of what architecture means, before developing individual proposals based on rigorous investigation and research. You will be asked to compile your research into a research fieldbook and then to share your knowledge in a collaborative way. Crits and discussions for the project will often take place in the chosen project context, opening up the process to a more public discourse.

Year 1 students will build on this exercise by undertaking an international study-trip to further inform your understanding of current issues and the relationship between project ideas and the urban/social context of the city in question. MArch students have previously investigated cities such as Boston, Berlin and Barcelona.

Year 2 of the MArch begins by exploring architectural ideas in a more oblique way than just starting a design thesis with a site and brief. These explorations will allow you to cultivate potential ideas and research for your thesis project in a less linear way and which aims to enable you to position yourself relative to the wider culture and debates at an advanced level in the discipline of architecture. The final year design thesis projects are all deliberately located in Belfast, to engage the city the school is rooted in. This allows a unique type of engagement with current issues and the changing urban nature of Belfast.

- Teaching and learning assessment -

The Master of Architecture programme uses a full range of teaching and learning scenarios. There are two main learning activities: Taught Study and Self-Directed Study:

- Taught studies include such activities as reviews (reviews of work, sometimes known in architecture as crits/critiques), tutorials (individual and group), seminars (staff and student led), workshops and demonstrations.

- Self-directed study is carried out within the module timetable but without time-tabled staff contact. You are expected to carry out such activities as ideas development, research, designing, drawing, reading, writing etc.

Career options

Graduates are working in many different practices both nationally and internationally on a range of exciting building and urban projects. The knowledge gained during this professional degree (i.e. RIBA Part II) will not only support a wide range of employment opportunities in architecture practices, urban design bodies, architecture conservation organisations, and many governmental and private relevant institutions but also facilitate the route to a PhD level research.
