The Automotive Engineering course is an international 4-year bachelor and is taught entirely in English. It trains students for testing complete vehicles and components in the automotive industry.

The course provides students with a broad range of skills such as mechanical engineering, chasis design, management and communication skills in an international context. The focus is on future and international mobility concepts.
They acquire a good understanding of a wide variety of topics from technology (engines, electrical and electronic engineering, computation skills, construction principles) to organizational ones (marketing, management, business) as well as repairs and maintenance. Knowledge and skills are gathered on automobiles (passenger cars, trucks, buses, motor cycles, trailers, caravans) and the automotive industry.
