This Connected Autonomous Vehicle Systems (CAVS) MSc course is designed to provide students from a software engineering, computer science and other similar backgrounds with the required critical skills to produce robust and safe Automated Driving Systems (ADS) for use in CAV applications. The course will cover topics such as sensor fusion, localisation, planning, communications, and human interaction. A special focus will be paid to safety, cybersecurity, testing, and validation of CAVS. These modules will also be delivered by industrial partner HORIBA MIRA, in order to ensure a real-world experience.
The course focuses on the software and computer systems required by ADS, rather than the physical engineering and electrical aspects. The course is intended for graduates with existing computer science related specialisations at degree level or individuals with prior industrial experience, who are looking to specialise or transition into the CAV sector.
