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.
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.
This program is legally recognized and accredited by the Accreditation Organisation of Holland and Flanders (NVAO).
The content of the program is focused on giving you a sound theoretical basis in automotive engineering, together with specific multidisciplinary knowledge of modern automotive technology.

You only need to take one of these language tests:
Minimum required score:
The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.Book IELTS
Minimum required score (Grade C):
The CAE test – or the Cambridge Advanced English – is an exam for applicants who wish to get a Certificate in Advanced English. To receive the Advanced certificate, test-takers must score between 142 and 210 on the Cambridge English: Advanced test. Read more about CAE.
Note: degree programmes and applications may require a more specific minimum score for admission.
Minimum required score:
The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).
Because of the multidisciplinary character of the program several bachelor degrees provide admission to the Master's degree program Automotive Technology. You should have at least a Bachelor's degree in one of the following fields of expertise:
The living costs include the total expenses per month, covering accommodation, public transportation, utilities (electricity, internet), books and groceries.
Various scholarships are open to students wishing to follow a Master's program at the TU/e. A requirement of most scholarships is that you have been admitted to a Master's program before you may apply to the scholarship. It is therefore important that you take good note of the scholarships deadlines and apply well in advance to the TU/e Master's program of your choice in time to meet the scholarship deadline.
StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
