The vehicle is at the heart of everything we do

By choosing to do a degree programme at the Faculty of Automotive Engineering, you decide right from the start on a modern, technical degree programme which puts the focus on vehicles and prepares you for the challenges of the future.

All of our Automotive Engineering lecturers have many years of professional experience in vehicle development. They collaborate closely with industry to train you to become a technically competent engineer who is also a good team player. They equip you with in-depth, specialist knowledge and skills, placing particular emphasis on practical relevance as well as methodological and social competences, the so-called soft skills.

Students wishing to take this programme must have three months of a pre-degree practical experience in a technical field or have gained experience of a similar nature while a school or during their vocational training.

At the Automotive Faculty you can study the bachelor degree programmes Automotive Engineering (B.Eng.) and Automotive Systems (B.Eng.). In the both bachelor degree programmes, your first three semesters will be taken up with the technical foundations which form the basis for the development of modern vehicles. 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.

In the degree programme  Automotive Engineering (B.Eng.), 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.

The focus in the degree programme Automotive Systems (B.Eng.) is on electronic vehicle control systems and the growing vehicle electrification and digitalisation.

The Master programme in Automotive Engineering (M.Eng.) builds on what you have learnt in the two Bachelor programmes. You will extend and expand the knowledge and skills you have already gained in lectures, laboratory exercises and a one-year research project.

Moreover, the Faculty of Automotive Engineering has teamed up with the Graduate School to offer two international Master programmes - Automotive Systems (M.Eng.) and Design and Development in Automotive and Mechanical Engineering (M.Eng.), both of which are taught in English.
