As an automotive engineer you are involved in the design, development, production and evaluation of
vehicle systems and components. With the further qualification of a Masters degree, you also possess
valuable skills in applied research, communication and management. This enables you to lead projects, while balancing engineering, economical and commercial interests. Moreover, you have the technical expertise to evaluate and realise underlying control strategies and embedded electronic systems. The combination of these skills makes you highly employable in this industry.
Students and lecturers of the Masters track in Automotive Systems participate in applied research
projects for the HAN Automotive Research Group. These projects are motivated by developments in the
automotive industry. One example is the electrification of the powertrain, a growing trend introduced with the Toyota Prius in 1997 and which has gained momentum and interest ever since. The research group has collaborated with various companies on research in this area, including the building and testing of
prototype vehicles and test rigs. Another example is smart mobility. Making vehicles smarter can help
prevent accidents caused by human error, for example through the development of active control concepts and advanced driver support. As a Masters student you get to work on these kinds of innovative research projects in collaboration with companies like Ford Research and DAF Trucks.
The academic year comprises of semesters, during which you will be taught by means of lectures, lab sessions, and minor projects. After the teaching component of the course, you will do a graduation project (thesis). The total study load is 2520 hours (90 ECTS credits). The courses are thematically grouped into study units of 15 EC each called modules. When you follow a module in a typical week you first have a lecture to gain theoretical knowledge, then you get practical experience by applying the gained knowledge in labs, continuing by using both theoretical and practical experience in solving a problem from industry in a minor project. The minor projects allow you to specialize in relevant topics.
