Study type Taught


The automotive sector is changing rapidly. Car manufacturers and technology companies are developing new autonomous technologies that will redefine the future of transport. With the rapid adoption of smart vehicle functions, industry requires a unique set of skills from its engineers and programmers. The MSc in Connected and Autonomous Vehicle Engineering (Automotive) will develop your technical and transferable skills in autonomous navigation, sensing and perception, systems integration, human factors, and ethical/legal frameworks, to prepare you for a career within the automotive sector.

The course is suitable for STEM graduates who are interested in a career in the automotive or intelligent mobility sectors. The course is equally suitable for recent graduates and those with industry experience. Candidates with degrees in engineering subjects are welcomed, and so are graduates of related subject areas such as science, mathematics and computing. The course is intended to equip its graduates with skills that will be of immediate use but will also equip them well for senior technical and business leadership roles in future. Students from the UK and overseas are welcome, and all will find this course useful.

Cranfield has a long and excellent track record in graduate courses for the automotive industry, a strong track record in research, and strong links and collaborations with the automotive OEM and Tier 1 companies and their supply chains. Cranfield has an exceptionally high level of engagement with industry, and our graduates are highly valued.

As a postgraduate-only university, Cranfield University is well suited to the needs of those studying at Masters’ level, and has excellent facilities to support teaching and learning. We are located near Milton Keynes, which is emerging as a centre of excellence for connected and autonomous vehicles. We are placed centrally in the Oxford-Cambridge ‘arc’, noted for its enterprise in technology.

Cranfield has recently opened a new Intelligent Mobility Engineering Centre (IMEC) and the Multi-User Environment for Autonomous Vehicle Innovation (MUEAVI, a test ground for connected and autonomous vehicle engineering), both of which are used to support teaching across the automotive subject spectrum.
