Autonomous driving, networked vehicles, E-mobility and intelligent mobility concepts are determining the strategies being adopted by the automobile industry and transport policy.
The innovative Bachelor degree in Automotive Systems is the best possible preparation you could have for the new challenges.
The programme takes seven semesters to complete and is offered every semester. Students wishing to take this programme must have pre-degree practical experience (German version) in a technical field or have gained experience of a similar nature while at school or during their vocational training.
NEW! In summer semester 21 the pre-degree practical internship is not requiered.
In semesters 1 to 3, the fundamentals of mathematics, computer science, electrical engineering, electronics and control engineering are taught in conjunction with basic knowledge of automotive engineering.
In the second part of the programme, you will familiarise yourself with the structure and operation of modern electronic automotive systems. This covers the structure, actuator and sensor systems, or simulation and software functions of automotive systems. In the 4th and 6th semesters, you must take the obligatory lectures on specialist topics and can also choose four compulsory elective modules from a comprehensive catalogue of modules to suit your own particular interests and talents. These modules cover not only the classical fields of study for automotive engineering but also new mobility and powertrain concepts through to fields of application for artificial intelligence and machine learning.
After gaining practical experience in the fifth semester, the final part of the programme focuses on autonomous driving, new mobility and powertrain concepts, and networked vehicles.
The specialist knowledge you gained while studying for your Bachelor degree can be enhanced in the continuation Master programme in Automotive Engineering. Furthermore, there are further options to broaden your knowledge with the Master programmes in Applied Computer Science (Autonomous Systems). and Automotive Systems, at Esslingen University of Applied Sciences.
The Faculty of Automotive Engineering added a further degree programme to its portfolio in the winter semester 2019/20 - the part-time Master in Autonomous Driving.
