A vehicle engineer working in the automotive industry must currently be able to deal with the challenges related to the evolution of the vehicle in a high-tech complex system based on deep interconnections among mechanics, electronics, telecommunications, computer science. This programme provides suitable training for a professional profile focused on the design and development of the main sub-systems included in car vehicles and road motor vehicles, with specific reference to the premium and motorsport markets, specifically focusing on the professional knowledge in information engineering. The Master's Degree Programme in Electronic Engineering for Intelligent Vehicles (EEIV) is an Interuniversity International programme offered by MUNER - Motorvehicle University of Emilia- Romagna, a project proposed by Regione Emilia-Romagna and that is the result of the collaboration among the Universities of Bologna, Ferrara, Modena and Reggio Emilia, Parma, and the world's most prestigious automotive companies based in the territory: Automobili Lamborghini, Dallara, Ducati, Ferrari, Haas F1 Team, HPE Coxa, Marelli, Maserati, Pagani Automobili, Scuderia Alpha Tauri. The Degree Programme is also peculiar for being fully offered in English, and for mainly focusing on providing theoretical and laboratory contents, based on a Learning by Doing approach; for organising internships at the industrial partners and carrying out thesis activities based on a Project Working mode at university and corporate research laboratories.

Course content

The EEIV Master's Degree Programme offers students the opportunity to develop their skills by directly focusing on the vehicle and motor vehicle sector of the premium, racing, or self-driving segment. The first year starts with in-depth studies on training subjects related to electronics applied to vehicles for the future. Since the first year, the degree programme is divided into two curricula: - Electronics and Communications Systems - ECS (Bologna and Modena campus): studies of the operating principles and design of the main electronic and telecommunications systems in the automotive sector. - Autonomous Driving Engineering - ADE (Bologna and Parma campus): study of information engineering systems and technologies for the development of autonomous driving systems.

Career options

The main job opportunities offered by the master's degree programmes of this class are related to the innovation and development of products and processes, advanced designing, production planning and programming, and complex system management in manufacturing or service companies that deal with the design and production of vehicles and motor vehicles of the premium or racing segment of the market, in their relevant production chains, operating in the international field. Graduates in EEIV may continue their studies by completing their preparation in a PhD School or a 2nd level Master. Master graduates also possess the skills and meet the requirements in accordance with the applicable legislation to work as Engineers in the various specialisations that are governed by the State law within the Professional Association of Engineers, section A, sector C-Information.
