Every day, freight trains, trucks, aeroplanes and ships transport enormous quantities of raw material and manufactured goods around the world, while billions of people travel for work and leisure in the same manner. On the Automotive engineering profile of this master's programme you will investigate how the growth of autonomous driving, electrification and intelligent vehicle systems will challenge and change the industry in the coming decades.
Studying the Automotive engineering profile, you will receive a solid and holistic foundation in the automotive industry, including deep knowledge in areas like vehicle dynamics and aerodynamics, autonomous driving, active & passive safety, and propulsion. The industry is at a crossroads, and skilled automotive engineers, who can develop robust engineering solutions for transporting people and goods in a safe, sustainable, and cost-effective way are needed more than ever.
Automotive engineering research at Chalmers is carried out together with the Swedish Automotive industry and within several national centres and laboratories. You will study fundamentals including vehicle dynamics, vehicle aerodynamics, active & passive safety, and propulsion. Much of the work is focused on transport efficiency, automated driving, safety of vehicles and alternative propulsion systems.
The programme as a whole addresses the critical industries of aerospace engineering, automotive engineering, marine technology, and railway technology, with the option to specialise in one in particular. Graduates from the Mobility engineering programme at Chalmers will be qualified to take up professional roles within research and development, design and simulation of processes, systems, and parts of automotive, railway, aerospace and maritime vehicles or other mechanical systems. Both the holistic approach and the possibility for in-depth studies provided in the programme also offers a suitable background when aiming for a career or role within academic research, technical support, sales, manufacturing or management at different levels.
Apart from the specific entry requirements for the whole programme, students pursuing this profile will need to have prior knowledge in fluid mechanics, programming and in the strength of materials, depending on the selected area of interest.
