Electric Transportation Systems

Upon completion of the Master's Programme in Electric Transportation Systems, graduates will have a profound understanding about electrical transportation systems as a whole and be able to apply appropriate technology solutions in the technological development of future transportation systems. 


Electric transportation systems are emerging worldwide to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector. The changes in technology concern the whole transportation system – road transportation, off-road machines, marine vessels and aviation. This programme gives an overview of the technology and business in electric transportation systems. It also focuses on key technologies and skills related to electric transportation, such as electro-mechanical drive trains, power electronics, battery technology and related information technology. Also indirect electrification methods and e-fuel technologies are considered, and environmental impacts of different technology solutions are analysed.
