Program Overview

The Master of Engineering in Autonomous Vehicles program is designed for engineering professionals working in the mobility (automotive) industry. Students can broaden their skill set for careers in Autonomous Vehicle design and development. All students must complete two mobility systems fundamentals courses (which two depend on your undergraduate degree), courses on automotive controls and signal processing, two management courses, and four technical courses specifically in Autonomous Vehicles.

Program Objectives

All graduates of the Master of Engineering in Autonomous Vehicles program will:

  • Deepen their knowledge and increase their mastery of technical areas in Autonomous Vehicle design and development.

  • Be better prepared to advance in positions of technical and/or managerial leadership.

  • Develop their ability to sustain a life-long career in engineering, through continuing self-directed learning and professional development activities.

To receive the MEng Autonomous Vehicle degree a student must complete 30 credit hours of approved graduate work. There is no option for thesis work.

Graduate Assistantship

There are no opportunities for graduate assistant positions in the M. Eng. Program.
