Automotive Technology: a multidisciplinary challenge

Vehicles are a source of multidisciplinary challenges for technicians and scientists. Due to increasing intelligence (electronics, software) in vehicles a multidisciplinary engineer is required. This, together with the introduction of hybrid vehicles and vehicles that run on new fuels instantly show that an automotive engineer needs a background in mechanics, electronics, computer science and chemistry. As a future automotive engineer you should have knowledge of all these aspects. TU/e offers an automotive oriented education program which teaches you to see the car as a ‘system’ but also offers you in-depth knowledge about one of the essential parts of a vehicle. The master Automotive Technology gives you an outstanding starting point for a successful career in the automotive industry, education or research institutes.

The program is provided by research groups of six departments:

  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Chemical Technology
  • Mathematics and Computer Science
