Project Title:  Computational Comparison and Analysis of Vehicle Drive Cycle Emissions Testing and Their Impact on Fuel Efficiency and Emissions

Project Description

The aim of my project was to investigate and analyse the effect of vehicle emissions regulations and compare the findings through simulations of the NEDC and WLTP cycle comparing the results of three test vehicles, looking at fuel efficiency and emitted pollutants across both driving cycles.

I’ve been interested in engineering from an early age and this course offered a natural progression from my time spent in college studying motorcycle mechanical principles

after weighing up my options UWTSD seemed to offer the best academic experience for what I wanted to achieve

My aspirations after I graduate are to firstly complete the automotive masters course and then to find a graduate position either in the motorsport industry or powertrain industry.
