Course Summary

Sustainable Automotive Electrification MSc is designed for engineering or STEM graduates with an interest in automotive innovation. Warwick Manufacturing Group will develop your skills to design and evaluate the next generation of low environmental impact automotive products.

Course Overview

Through this course you’ll develop the skills to design and evaluate the next generation of automotive products that have a lower environmental impact than conventional vehicles. Within the context of environmental legislation and consumer expectations for vehicle quality, reliability, and performance, you will learn to assess the different technology options and methods for design, system integration, and verification, that will drive the market introduction of new energy efficient vehicles. Working within WMG’s state-of-the-art facilities, you will gain from the latest innovations in research and technology management that are prerequisite for career progression within the international automotive industry. This course will be accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) 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/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree to comply with full CEng registration requirements.


This course has two components – a taught component accounting for two thirds of your time and effort, and a research component (dissertation) accounting for one-third.

For the taught component, we blend lectures with workshops, practical exercises, demonstrations, case studies, problem classes, syndicate exercises, and a review. Each module is delivered intensively over one full week or two half weeks, and class sizes are kept small with 20-25 students in each.

Our module leaders have extensive industry experience. Guest speakers from industry also contribute regularly, bringing real-world insight into your learning experience.


Graduates from the MSc in Sustainable Automotive Electrification can expect to take a leadership role with a vehicle manufacturer or specialist supplier. We would expect you to become a research manager or technology leader within the strategically important areas of vehicle electrification and sustainability.

You will have gained the management skills, technical awareness, and vision to assess different technology options within the context of environmental legislation and consumer expectations for vehicle quality, reliability, and performance.

Our department has a dedicated professionally qualified Senior Careers Consultant offering impartial advice and guidance together with workshops and events throughout the year. Previous examples of workshops and events include:

  • Warwick careers fairs throughout the year
  • WMG Future Fest
  • Options in Engineering sector event
  • Careers for experienced hires
  • Careers in Cyber Security
  • Careers in healthcare
  • Careers in project management


In this module, you will gain a comprehensive understanding and practical experience of the modelling and simulation of physical systems within an automotive context. Developing both theoretical and practical understanding of the derivation of ordinary differential equations, applicable numerical methods and the construction of models to solve problems in both time and frequency domains.
