The Faculty of Automotive Engineering offers a degree programme in Automotive Engineering leading to a Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.). Students wishing to take this programme must have three months of pre-degree practical experience in a technical field or have gained experience of a similar nature while at school or during their vocational training.
The programme is offered each semester. The standard duration of the degree programme is 7 semesters including an internship of choice in Germany or any other country.
You will spend three semesters of the Bachelor’s programme learning the general fundamentals of automotive engineering. In semesters four to six you will deepen your knowledge. In addition to lectures on advanced topics in automotive engineering, you have a wide range of options. Depending on your preferences and interests, you can choose from the topics of Powertrain, Chassis and Control Systems, Bodywork or Service. You can find furhter information about the four topics on the German page.
On completion of the Bachelor’s programme, students may take the continuation Master’s in Automotive Engineering, Automotive Systems or Design and Development in Automotive and Mechanical Engineering (Master’s programmes taught in English in the Graduate School).
KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS FOR THE TASKS OF TOMORROW
The Faculty of Automotive Engineering works in close cooperation with industry to train competent, teamwork-oriented engineers.
