High Performance Car Design
For students aiming a career as design and manufacturing engineers, experts in the development of high- performance vehicles.
The High Performance Car Design (HPCD) curriculum is part of the Master’s Degree in Advanced Automotive Engineering (AAE).
For students aiming a career as design and manufacturing engineers, experts in the development of high-performance vehicles, through state-of-the-art computer aided engineering methods and tools for aerodynamics, vehicle dynamics, structural analysis for chassis and body, engineering design of automotive components and systems.
It aims to train professionals capable of designing high performance road vehicles, with strong skills in vehicle design and manufacturing, dynamics and NVH (Noise Vibration Harshness), materials behaviour, mechanical engineering and electronics, aerodynamics, thermo-fluid dynamics, automatic controls and electronic sensors.
The course in High Performance Car Design is held entirely at the Department of Engineering Enzo Ferrari (Modena Campus). The first semester of the first academic year is common to the other curricula of the Master’s Degree Course in Advanced Automotive Engineering.
