Aeronautical and Automotive Engineering

Postgraduate taught

Postgraduate Certificates

We offer a range of Postgraduate Certificates all designed to develop the skills of trained engineers to become specialists in particular disciplines within automotive engineering. Each of our certificates share an emphasis on the skills to use simulation and test tools to develop the understanding required to resolve problems and engineer better products.

Each Certificate consists of three linked modules that together give the foundation in knowledge and skills to develop new specialists. While the core block is a PG Cert the programme has high levels of flexibility to accommodate students that require only a single module or where a student wishes to pursue the programme to a full MSc. The structure also provides for students to change path and progress through the qualification levels.

Exercises at MIRA proving ground and in Loughborough laboratory facilities are integrated into the PG Certs as a means of achieving the best possible learning outcomes. 

You can read more about the Postgraduate Certificates in the online Postgraduate Prospectus.

Postgraduate Certificate in Powertrain Simulation and Test

The overall aim is to develop the underlying skills to engineer, analyse and develop conventional, hybrid and electric powertrains in the context of the vehicle attributes and overall product development process.

The Certificate consists of three modules:

  • Vehicle and Powertrain Functional Performance
  • Sustainable Vehicle Powertrains
  • Powertrain Calibration Optimisation

 

Postgraduate Certificate in Intelligent Vehicle Systems (available from 2017/18)

The overall aim is to develop the knowledge and skills to develop, analyse and implement intelligent features and autonomous functions on road vehicles. The Certificate develops this in the context of the fundamentals of autonomous control, vehicle dynamic performance and simulation capability.

The Certificate consists of three modules:

  • Vehicle Dynamics and Control
  • Vehicle Systems Integration
  • Autonomous Vehicle Systems

 

Postgraduate Certificate in Body and Chassis Simulation and Test

The overall aim is to develop the engineering skills required to analyse and develop body and chassis systems. The Certificate develops this in the context of primary vehicle systems for example vehicle braking systems and core vehicle attributes, for example Vehicle NVH, body structures and crashworthiness.

The Certificate consists of three modules:

  • Vehicle Systems Analysis
  • Body Engineering
  • Vehicle Aerodynamics
