MSc 2 years part-time (block taught)

Road and Vehicle Safety can mean many different things to many people because addressing traffic injury on today's roads is now seen as a multifaceted and integrated process.

Improvements to vehicle crashworthiness, braking and handling are part of a system which includes road and infrastructure design, driver assistance and driver performance. More than ever before, there is a need to monitor the interaction between safety systems to gauge their effectiveness and to guide new developments.


Modules in this programme are assessed by a mixture of examination and coursework. The Masters project assessment is predominantly based on a written dissertation though marks are also awarded for an interim progress report of 2000 words.
