Coventry University’s Institute of Coding is offering a new Master of Science degree in Connected and Automated Vehicles.
Working with nearby test and development facility HORIBA MIRA, the course aims to let learners “benefit from a blend of academic excellence and industry expertise”.
“As the automotive sector begins to focus on the development and manufacture of autonomous vehicles, the demand for specific types of skills will only increase,” a statement reads. “The CAVS MSc is a blend of practical and taught elements, designed to equip learners with specialist skills.”
The course will focus on the software and computer systems required by Automated Driving Systems and has nine modules, ranging from safety and cyber security, to human factors and communication to name a few.
The University says the course is the first of its kind to be partly delivered at the MIRA Technology Institute which is a bespoke global centre for specialist skills in key areas of emerging automotive technologies. The Institute is based at the MIRA Technology Park near Nuneaton.
The MSc is not only suitable for postgraduate students with a degree in either computer science or a related subject, but is also open to candidates who have relevant or industry experience in B2B automotive, transport, tiered supply chains and logistics.
