A vehicle engineer working in the automotive industry must currently be able to deal every day with the challenges related to the evolution of the traditional vehicle in a high-tech complex system based on deep interconnections among mechanics, electronics, storage and energy conversion systems, materials and control. Students enrolling in this programme have the opportunity to receive a suitable training to develop a professional profile focused on the design, development and production of the main sub-systems included in car vehicles and road motor vehicles, with specific reference to the premium and motorsport markets, as well as develop and manage the relating technologic and manufacturing processes, specifically focusing on the professional knowledge in information engineering. They will be able to design and engineer the most advanced electronic, information, and connection systems in the automotive field. The Master's Degree Programme in Advanced Automotive Electronic Engineering (AAEE) 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 (at Universities and company laboratories of industrial partners), 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. All these features make the proposed programme an extremely original one.

Course content

The AAEE 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 or racing segment. The first year includes in-depth studies on training subjects related to electronics applied to vehicles for the future. The second year offers instead the opportunity to choose among multiple programmes to specialise in some innovative subjects that enable students to apply frontier research to products under development. The AAEE Master's Degree Programme guarantees students both the opportunity to study abroad by participating in the Erasmus programme and spend periods of time abroad to take up internships and/or carrying out jobs useful to prepare the final thesis.

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 Advanced Automotive Engineering 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.
