About

Automotive Technology: a multidisciplinary program

Vehicles are a source of multidisciplinary challenges for technicians and scientists. The automotive industry is fast-moving with new technologies developing for low emissions and safe mobility. The possibilities seem unlimited. The traditional car has been developed into a controlled high-tech system full of mechanics, electronics, sensors and informatics. 

The increase in vehicle intelligence has led to a vast demand for highly educated engineers able to think on system level, to work in a variety of disciplines and to observe the complete system rather than a collection of components. The industry needs automotive engineers with a background in mechanics, electronics, computer science and chemistry. As a future automotive engineer you should have knowledge of all these aspects. 

The MSc program Automotive Technology from Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) offers this knowledge.

After graduation

The automotive industry is showing great interest in engineers applying a systems approach. R&D employees will become essential over the next few years. The program's multidisciplinary character prepares perfectly for working in the automotive industry but also in related sectors using a similar background, energy and high-tech systems, such as mechatronics and aerospace. 

Accreditation

This program is legally recognized and accredited by the Accreditation Organisation of Holland and Flanders (NVAO).
