Vehicle Systems Concentration

The Vehicle Systems concentration focuses on the performance of surface vehicles of all sorts, whether on the road, terrain, rails, or even the sea, addressing such phenomena as handling, acceleration, ride, roll stability, pulling power, and noise and vibration. You’ll analyze vehicle performance using analytical skills and simulation, test for it using modern instrumentation, sensors and a vehicle dynamometer, and design for it using a perspective on vehicle dynamics phenomena that draws on analogies between different modes of transport.

You’ll learn how to project vehicle performance through analytical skills and computer simulation, how to test using modern instrumentation, and how to design for it using a perspective of the vehicle as a complete system. As you progress, you’ll develop a competence with specific sub-systems and parts.
