Master of Engineering in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems

Subject to Validation

This Masters Degree specialises in the design and development of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, the underlaying technology of smart and autonomous vehicles. This part-time programme brings together interdisciplinary concepts such as computer vision, artificial intelligence, vehicle dynamics and advanced sensor systems to provide current engineers with the skills required to design the next generation of automotive technology.

About this Programme

This NFQ Level 9, 90 ECTS Credits Masters Degree has been developed in collaboration with industry and is aimed at Electronic, Computer, Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineers who wish to develop the skills required to design the next generation of technology for smart and autonomous vehicles.

The programme will run over two years part time with 60 credits of taught modules primarily delivered online with some on-campus workshops. This will be followed by a 30-credit industrial research project in the field of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems.

Application Closing Date : 31st August 2018
