Program description

Master of Engineering Sciences - Automotive Engineering

This study programme aims to provide graduates with a wide range of technical skills and independent learning ability to make them effective in organisations that design and develop automotive products.

Graduates are employed in the automotive industry, which comprises a range of businesses, institutes and agencies active in the research, development, manufacturing, validating, maintaining and selling of products associated with vehicles and transport system. ‘Vehicles’ should be understood as a broad concept covering passenger vehicles, trucks, buses, special vehicles, motor cycles, but also pulled vehicles such as trailers, semi-trailers and caravans.


The transport industry is facing new challenges, such as fuel economy, alternative fuel use, green energy – hybrid and electric vehicles, intelligent driving support systems, increasing safety requirements, environmental changes and global warming, vision of zero accidents and etc. Therefore, this situation requires professionals who are trained to deal with these challenges and are familiar with new technologies and management systems.
The aim of master’s degree in Automotive Engineering is to produce well trained students who will be future professionals and respond to the needs of this industrial sector.
