An electronics engineer working in the automotive world must be able to cope with the challenges of vehicle evolution within a complex high-tech system, based on deep interconnections between mechanics, electronics, telecommunications and information technology. This programme provides a suitable training for a professional profile aimed at the design and development of the main sub-systems that make up road vehicles, with particular reference to the premium and motorsport market, specialising in particular the professional skills in the field of 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 also distinguishes for offering teachings completely delivered in English and a significant attention to the provision of theoretical and laboratory contents according to a "Learning by Doing" logic. It also offers internships to be taken at the industrial partners and the opportunity to carry out thesis activities at university and company research laboratories.

Programme contents

The EEIV Master's degree programme allows students to deepen their skills by immediately addressing the premium, competition or self-driving car and motorbike segment. The first year includes initial in-depth studies on training subjects related to electronics applied to vehicles for the future. From the first year onwards, the Programme is divided into two curricula: - Electronics and Communications Systems - ECS Bologna and Modena campus): the operating principles and design of the main electronic and telecommunications systems in the automotive sector are studied - Autonomous Driving Engineering - ADE (Bologna and Parma sites): study of information engineering systems and technologies for the realisation of autonomous driving systems.

Job opportunities

The main employment opportunities envisaged by the master's degree programmes of this class are those of innovation and development of products and processes, advanced design, production planning and scheduling, and management of complex systems in manufacturing or service companies engaged in the design and production of premium, competition or autonomous-drive vehicles and related supply chains, active both nationally and internationally. Graduates in EEIV can continue their studies by completing their preparation in a Doctoral School, or in an Advanced Master Programme (2nd level). Master's graduates are also skilled and meet the requirements established by current legislation to carry out the profession of Engineer in the various specialisations governed by the laws of the State within the Professional Order of Engineers, section A, sector C-Information.
