Course contents

The master’s degree programme in Advanced Automotive Engineering lasts two academic years.

The course is organised into six curricula (see below) whose contents have been defined together with the contribution of the partner companies so as to ensure that training is in line with current requirements of the labour market.

The first semester of the first academic year is common for all students and courses take place in the Modena campus. From the second semester of the firs academic year, courses will take place in different campus according to the curricula choosed, located in the following cities: Modena, Bologna, Parma. Courses aim at providing the core competences related to high performance vehicle design. The programme is delivered entirely in the English language.
Topics include: vehicle lay-out design; vehicle production processes and vehicle components construction and assembly; choice and use of materials for the high-performance vehicles; mechanical effects on systems and components.
