The programme Master of Science in Automotive Engineering focuses on all disciplines within Automotive Systems Engineering, including conception, development, design and construction and the manufacturing process of vehicles. The lectures, seminars and workshops are directly influenced by the ongoing research at the RWTH Aachen University, thus ensuring an up-to-date and innovative curriculum. The Master programme particularly aims to enhance the students ability to lead and coordinate project teams and to strengthen their skills in scientific documentation and communication.
The programmes goal is to provide qualification for most demanding positions in the automotive sector. This includes jobs in industrial, research and development and other private or public organisations. Jobs in traffic systems technologies and traffic guidance/organisation are also possible.
The outstanding reputation of the Institut für Kraftfahrzeuge (ika) in the automotive world and of RWTH Aachen University as top university underlines the excellent prospects for master programme graduates.
The programme "Automotive Engineering" consists of compulsory and elective courses. The compulsory courses cover the fundamentals of Automotive Engineering and include lectures such as Automotive Engineering, Internal Combustion Engine Fundamentals, Production Management, Quality Management, Machine Design Process and Tribology.
Elective courses are chosen from a list of subjects, such as the Dynamics of Machines, Fundamentals of Light Weight Design, Industrial Engineering, Ergonomics and Work Organisation, Internal Combustion Engines, Laser Technique (Process) or Manufacturing Technology.
In addition to the course work, students of Automotive Engineering must also complete the following:
* A German language course
* A nine-week industrial internship
* A study-integrated mini-thesis
* A four-month Master thesis.
