O que eu aprenderei?

The aim of the Automotive Engineering programme is to provide students with a system perspective of automotive vehicles and depth within three focus areas: power train, vehicle dynamics and safety.

The programme is based on lectures, large assignments, simulations and experiments, and these are carried out as real case studies, or using other similar methods, with assistance from industrial tools.

Power train and vehicle dynamics are two essential disciplines in terms of understanding and designing the automotive vehicle system and its behaviour. The same is true of the field of safety, which is also a strong competence area at Chalmers; this brings a unique touch to the programme not found at many other universities.

Since all industrial automotive product development is carried out in a team-based project environment, the programme stresses the importance of project work. The aim of the projects is to provide a work environment that closely resembles that found in industry. Students work on a multi-cultural team composed of many different competencies. Project tasks derive from industry or academia, and they take technical aspects as well as the importance of communication, teamwork and project management into consideration.

Learning objectives

Graduates will be able to:

identify and discuss vehicles as complex systems from technical and social perspectives through a broad platform in automotive engineering

analyze new technical challenges and create technical advancements in the automotive industry in three focus areas: power train, vehicle dynamics and safety

synthesize and evaluate automotive systems and products in terms of direct use and lifecycle analysis and take environmental and economic aspects into consideration

through applications and practice:

  • utilize automotive-related IT and product development tools
  • demonstrate the skills needed to manage and contribute to team-based engineering activities and projects in a multi-cultural environment.

Career opportunities

The programme will lead to professional roles within research and development, design, and testing of processes, systems and parts of automotive vehicles or other mechanical systems. Some of the career possibilities include design of suspension systems, development of engine processes, design and evaluation of active and passive safety systems, testing and evaluation of power trains, suspensions, stability of heavy vehicles, and new opportunities in the area of autonomous driving.

The holistic approach provided by the programme also offers a suitable background when aiming for a career/role within technical support, sales, manufacturing or management at different levels.
