Automotive Systems (M. Eng.)

General Information

Innovative and International

"An experience that changes your life" - Alfonso Rivera, ASM class of 2014

BUILD YOUR CAREER IN AUTOMOTIVE SYSTEMS

The programme is designed for students who wish to become highly qualified engineers in the field of automotive systems, who wish to work in the development of feedback control systems, automotive software and automotive electronics. Students have to choose one of the three majors:

  • Software-Based Automotive Systems
  • Vehicle Dynamics
  • Car Electronics
STUDY IN THE HEART OF THE EUROPEAN AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY

Esslingen University of Applied Sciences has a long tradition in educating mechanical and automotive engineers. Founded in 1914 as the Royal College for Mechanical Engineering, the university has always taken advantage of its location in one of the major centres of the European industry, and is therefore closely linked to the nearby companies. These include many global technological leaders in mechanical and automotive engineering such as Bosch, Daimler, Audi, Festo, Porsche and many others. These strong connections to the industry are especially important when it comes to the placement of the student’s master's thesis.

Learn to work in an interdisciplinary and intercultural environment

The ASM programme reflects the needs of globally-oriented companies. We offer the opportunity for students from diverse cultural backgrounds to study, work and live together. This is made possible through an active contact with partner universities in many countries throughout the world. The intercultural co-operation on project work is also of added value to master's students.

Our Programmes: Students' #1 Choice!

How happy are students with their university? The online portal StudyPortals decided to find out. In its world-wide competition asking students from 150 German universities how satisfied they were, we are very proud to announce that, out of these 150 German universities, Esslingen came in 10th place, flanked by top international universities of great renown.

Accreditation

The Esslingen master's programs were among the first to be accredited in Germany, and are regularly reaccredited by the Accreditation Agency ZevA (Zentrale Evaluations- und Akkreditierungsagentur). This agency is responsible for examining and certifying STEM university programs, as well as interdisciplinary programs containing STEM subjects. The DDM program has worked closely with the Accreditation Agencyl to help ensure its continual development of high quality and international recognition.

Career prospects

Automotive Systems (ASM) students choose one of three majors:

  • Vehicle Dynamics
  • Software Based Automotive Systems
  • Car Electronics

Vehicle Dynamics graduates aim to work in the field of development and testing of innovative automotive functions for steering, suspension and powertrain to improve ride & handling, stability, driveability and fuel economy.

Software Based Automotive Systems graduates will have the chance to work in the field of development, market launch and supervision of vehicle series production of suitable and innovative car communication systems and of safe software.

Car Electronics graduates aim to work in the field of specification, development and testing of control units and their integration in the car, taking into account car specific basic conditions like function, packaging and EMC.
