Autonomous Driving (M.Eng.) (part-time degree programme)

General Information

General Information

Esslingen University of Applied Sciences added a further degree programme to its portfolio in the winter semester 2019/20 - the cutting-edge field of autonomous driving. This part-time Master’s degree is offered by the Faculty of Mobility and Technology. The Master’s degree in autonomous driving is a collaborative project of the University Federation SouthWest Germany. Esslingen University of Applied Sciences is responsible for the specialist content, the Graduate Campus Aalen is responsible for the organisation.

Autonomous driving is becoming a reality and is the main issue for numerous OEMs and suppliers. The development of automated vehicles requires factual and methodological knowledge from various specialist disciplines. Our Master programme is the best possible preparation for these challenges.
The degree programme is aimed at engineers with a first degree in a technical subject and graduates from the fields of IT, business information systems, physics or mathematics.

The programme is offered once a year starting in September, the application deadline is 15 July of that year. The programme takes four semesters (2 years) and awards 90 ECTS Credits.

Further information and the registration forms can be found on the website of Graduate Campus Aalen.
