The Bachelor's phase lasts three years and is completed with a Bachelor’s final project (BEP). Each year is worth 60 credits, with each credit equivalent to 28 hours of study. A year is therefore 1680 hours of study, or 42 weeks of 40 hours.
The 1st year is designed to give the student insight into the contents of the rest of the study, subsequent studies and professional practice. It comprises basic courses (including Data analytics, Calculus, and Applied natural sciences) and various electrical engineering courses. There is also plenty of scope for Design Based Learning (DBL). Our department offers interesting DBL projects in the first year (e.g. 5XIA0 DBL Automotive design project ‘energy challenge’) in which you will learn to solve auto-technology problems through working in project teams.
In the 2nd and 3rd years you will explore Automotive Technology in more depth and will have more time for elective courses.
