Are you passionate about automotive engineering? Do you want to broaden your career opportunities? Did you or are you expected to obtain your Bachelors degree? Then maybe the Masters degree course Automotive Systems would be a good match for you. With the qualification of a Masters degree, you will possess valuable skills in applied research, communication and management. This enables you to lead projects, while balancing engineering, economical and commercial interests. Moreover, you have the technical expertise to evaluate and realise underlying control strategies and embedded electronic systems.
During the Masters in Automotive Systems, you put theory into practice during the minor projects and during applied research for your Masters thesis. Research is geared towards solving an actual issue from industry. You get to work on innovative research projects in collaboration with companies like Ford Research and DAF Trucks. So knowledge and techniques from fundamental research are applied in an industrial environment and implemented in automotive systems and vehicles. This collaborative approach strengthens ties with industry and stimulates the exchange of knowledge. As a result, professional practice is constantly renewed and you benefit from a Masters degree that perfectly matches industry needs.
In the 1st year of the Masters in Automotive Systems, you follow practice-based modules. First you delve into the theory of the relevant module and then put it into practice during the minor projects, in which you work in small groups of students.1st semester:
In the Systems Modelling module you learn how to create a white box model of a real world process using the 4+1 step approach. In the Applied Control module you learn how to create analogue and digital feedback controllers using techniques as phase and gain margin as well as root locus. In addition, you follow courses that help you develop the skills you need to be able to work in a project team and to conduct research, such as communication skills and research skills.2nd semester:
In the 2nd semester you choose two of the modules listed below. Each module provides you with the necessary theoretical knowledge to complete the minor projects, where you work on a practical issue related to the topic.
In the 3rd semester you complete an in-company or on-campus project in the field of automotive systems.
Choice of two of the following modules, which each includes a Minor Project:
