Autonomous driving, vehicle networking, e-mobility and intelligent mobility concepts determine the strategies of the automotive industry and transport policy.
The future-oriented bachelor's programme in Vehicle Systems prepares you optimally for the new challenges.
The course of study is designed for seven semesters and starts every semester. 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.
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 course you will learn about the structure and function of modern electronic vehicle systems. This includes, for example, the structure, actuator and sensor technology or simulation and software functions of vehicle systems. In addition to the fixed specialist lectures, in the 4th and 6th semesters four elective modules can be chosen from an extensive module catalogue, depending on your interests and inclinations. In addition to the classic vehicle technology fields of knowledge, these modules include new mobility and drive concepts up to application areas of artificial intelligence and machine learning.
The last part of the course of studies, after the practical phase in the fifth semester, focuses on autonomous driving, new mobility and drive concepts as well as vehicle networking.
After the bachelor's degree, you can deepen your specialist knowledge in the consecutive master's programme in automotive engineering. In addition, there are further opportunities for specialisation with the Master's programmes Applied Computer Science (Autonomous Systems) and Automotive Systems at the Hochschule Esslingen.
