The mobility of the future is at the heart of everything we do (The English site will be updated soon)

In choosing to do a degree programme at the Faculty of Automotive Engineering, you decide right from the start on a topical, technical degree programme which puts the vehicle at the heart of everything you do and provides you with the best possible preparation 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, and also place particular emphasis on practical relevance and methodological and social competences, the so-called soft skills.

Students wishing to take this programme must have pre-degree practical experience in a technical field or have gained experience of a similar nature while at school or during their vocational training. Further information can also be found on the pages which describe the application process for our Bachelor programmes.

The Faculty of Automotive Engineering offers Bachelor degree programmes in Automotive Engineering (B.Eng.) and Automotive Systems (B.Eng.). You will spend the first three semesters studying the general fundamentals of automotive engineering. In the 4th, 5th and 6th semesters you will enhance your existing knowledge. In addition to lectures on specialist topics in the field of automotive engineering, we offer a large range of optional courses. The Automotive Engineering degree programme offers students several different fields of specialisation - powertrain, chassis and control systems, bodywork and service. The Automotive Systems degree programme focuses on electronic automotive control systems and the expanding field of vehicle electrification and digitisation.

The Master programme in Automotive Engineering (M.Eng.) builds on what has been taught 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.

The Faculty of Automotive Engineering added a further degree programme to its portfolio in the winter semester 2019/20 - the part-time Master's degree in autonomous driving.
