Programme in brief
The vehicles of today are composed of intelligent systems connected to each other. There is a huge demand for lightweight vehicles that are able to communicate with their environment and this requires specialists who are willing to identify the limits in the field and push beyond them. The Automotive Engineering programme will teach you how to design, create, and test these vehicles. As an automotive engineer, you will collaborate on the development of innovative electric vehicles and the communication and navigation systems that operate in tandem with the vehicle and its environment. You will also work on creating sustainable, solar energy applications for heavy-duty vehicles.
The Automotive Engineering programme is a four-year English taught programme that focuses on a combination of theory, practice and project work. It leads to an international Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree. For the first two years, every student follows the same curriculum. Starting in the third academic year, you will be able to make curriculum choices based on your own interests. You will be allowed to choose your internship and your minor. If you spend 40 hours per week on the programme, you will definitely complete it successfully.
