Thermal and Energy Management

Thermal system design is vital in maximising the energy efficiency of electric vehicles. From heat pump systems, to cabin HVAC and battery control, our teams are pioneers in thermal engineering. Join us and you’ll be using sophisticated new technologies to meet our clients’ needs. So, you could be looking at external aerodynamic and front-end cooling airflow, under-bonnet and underfloor thermal management, or cooling systems for electric and hybrid vehicle battery pack and power electronics. You might be analysing powertrain cooling circuit, investigating cabin thermal comfort or developing HVAC systems. Or you may be involved in developing total thermal management systems. In short, you’ll be instrumental in advancing this innovative area of vehicle development.

Systems Validation

As vehicles become increasingly connected, the potential risks associated with automated and electronic propulsion systems are also increasing. Join our systems validation group and you’ll be involved in analysing, testing and verifying the safety, security and strength of a variety of systems and products. It’s about identifying potential risks at the earliest possible stage to reduce unnecessary costs. It’s about working with our design and development teams to produce effective solutions. And ultimately, it’s about producing safer, smarter vehicles that people can trust.
