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.

In the Bachelor programme in Automotive Engineering (B.Eng.), 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. 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 emphasis in the Bachelor programme in Automotive Systems (B.Eng.) is on intelligent Automotive Systems. During the first three semesters, you will learn the foundations of electrical engineering and computer science which are necessary to understand these systems. Lectures, laboratory exercises and two big team projects will then help you to expand and extend your knowledge in the fields of vehicle digitisation, the development of modern electronic automotive systems and autonomous driving.

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. By selecting a specialisation (powertrain, chassis and control systems, bodywork or service) you have the opportunity to shape the direction in which your studies are to go.

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.
