Master in Advanced Automotive Engineering

The Master in Advanced Automotive Engineering at University of Modena and Reggio Emilia – UNIMORE  is aimed to provide knowledge and skills related to the design of motor vehicles and motorcycles that are high-performance and suitable for competitions. From hybrid and electric motor propellers to production systems with typical features of the new manufacturing 4.0 environment.

The international teaching staff includes highly experienced lectures and professionals. The number of places is limited to a maximum of 120 students and admissions are based on merit and interviews evaluating motivations and skills. 

The programme requires student participation in numerous laboratory activities either on campus or on the premises of industrial partners, in line with a “learning by doing” approach. The programme also includes mandatory internships in private companies and lab-based thesis preparation activities carried out following a “project work” approach.
