The transport industry is facing new challenges, such as fuel economy, alternative fuel use, green energy – hybrid and electric vehicles, intelligent driving support systems, increasing safety requirements, environmental changes and global warming, vision of zero accidents and etc. Therefore, this situation requires professionals who are trained to deal with these challenges and are familiar with new technologies and management systems.
The aim of master’s degree in Automotive Engineering is to produce well trained students who will be future professionals and respond to the needs of this industrial sector.


Automotive Engineering (along with transport engineering) is a branch of vehicle engineering, incorporating elements of mechanical, electrical, electronic, hydrodynamic, software and safety engineering. Is applied to: investigate and design, manufacture and operation of mobile machinery, railway transport, motorcycles, automobiles and trucks and their respective engineering subsystems.
Engineering attributes and disciplines that are important to the Automotive Engineer field are included in the study programme:

  • finite element method;
  • vehicle and transmissions dynamics and hydrodynamics;
  • optimization and optimal control methods;
  • mathematical modelling of vehicle systems;
  • railway transport energetics;
  • traffic flow;
  • reliability and durability in Automotive Engineering;
  • NVH (noise, vibration, harshness) engineering;
  • fuel economy and emissions;
  • transmissions, drivetrains and chassis;
  • 3D modelling (CAD, CAM and CAE systems);
  • reliability and durability in Automotive Engineering;
  • quality control management.
