Our vision is to create experienced and specialised engineers who will be highly sought after by the electrical automotive engineering market.
Climate change and the consequent need to reduce CO2 emissions has progressively led to major advances in many modern developments of power engineering such as in photovoltaics, wind turbines and biofuels. The next step, which strongly affects our daily lives, is transportation.
Electric vehicles minimise pollution whilst increasing power efficiency. Moreover, areas such as autonomous vehicles and smart transportation grids are beginning to become reality. As a result, the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee has recommended the government develop EV-specific qualifications for mechanics and engineers.
Coventry has a long history in the automotive and transport industries. Coventry University plays a significant role in shaping the future of modern transportation and has been a valuable partner in various projects and collaborations with industry and academia in the area of transportation, with significant experience and technical know-how. Furthermore, the Institute for Future Transport and Cities research centre has been established by Coventry University to organise and promote state-of-the-art research activities in the technological field of clean transportation.
