Want to be a mechanical engineer and design the racing and road motorvehicles of the future?
Advanced Automotive Engineering
Design and development of the next generation of high performance vehicles
The Master Degree course in Advanced Automotive Engineering provides the skills needed to design and develop high performance cars and motorcycles.
It is divided into 6 innovative curricula, designed together with MUNER’s founding partners to train the automotive engineers of the future: Advanced Motorcycle Engineering, Advanced Powertrain (with two different specializations), Advanced Sportscar Manufacturing, High Performance Car Design, Racing Car Design and Off-Highway Vehicle Engineering, a new curriculum active from the academic year 2024/25.
A common background in vehicle design, mechanical vibration, electronic systems, manufacturing and assembly technologies, science and technology of metallic and composite materials is offered to all students during the first semester at the Modena campus.
Admission & Requirements
Admission is based on merit and interviews to assess motivation and skills.
To be admitted, students must have a bachelor’s degree or equivalent with a minimum of 95/110, ranking in the top 35% of students, and an appropriate knowledge of the basic sciences (mathematics, computing, statistics, physics and chemistry) and the basic engineering subjects. Students must also have an appropriate knowledge of English at least at level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
Internship & Career Opportunities
Designed in close collaboration with leading companies in the automotive sector, the course enables graduates to integrate seamlessly into high-level roles in research, development and manufacturing environments focused on vehicles and their technologies.
At the end of the second academic year, the program also includes internships in private companies and lab-based thesis preparation activities that follow a ‘project work’ approach.
