ADVANCED SPORTSCAR MANUFACTURING
The Curriculum in Advanced Sportscar Manufacturing (ASM) is part of the Master’s Degree Course in Advanced Automotive Engineering (AAE).
The Program aims to train professionals in the development of production systems in the automotive field, from the design of new industrial plants to the new technologies of the industry 4.0.
It lasts two academic years and covers topics such as process engineering, the design of industrial plants and systems, production management and optimization, digital technologies for factory 4.0, and quality assurance process management.
The first semester of the first academic year is common with the other 4 curricula of the AAE Master’s Degree (Advanced Powertrain, High Performance Car Design, Racing Car Design, Advanced Motorcycle Engineering).
The number of places is limited to a maximum of 20 students. Admissions are based on merit and interviews evaluating motivations and skills. All teachings are delivered entirely in the English language.
The international teaching staff of Muner includes highly experienced lecturers and professionals. The contents of the Courses have been defined together with the contribution of the partner companies so as to ensure that training is in line with current requirements of the labour market. The aim is providing knowledge and skills related to the design of motorvehicles 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 Program 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. It also includes mandatory internships in private companies and lab-based thesis preparation activities carried out following a “project work” approach.
The first semester of the First Academic year is held located in Modena Campus. Starting from second semester of first academic year all courses location will be Bologna Campus.
The first semester of the First Academic year is held located in Modena Campus. Starting from the second semester of the first Academic Year, the Course will split between Modena and Bologna Campus depending on the specialization.

Internship and Career Perspectives
The educational path has been designed in strong cooperation with Companies operating in the automotive sector to allow a seamless insertion of the graduated in high profile roles in the research, development and manufacturing environments focused on vehicles and their technologies. Since companies are requiring engineers who are highly qualified and possess specialized skills, due to complete the Master’s Degree Program, students have to attend mandatory internships in private companies, as well as, lab-based thesis preparation activities carried out following a “project work” approach. Moreover, students also attend seminars with industrial and international speakers, factory visits, alumni talks throughout the year.
The Advanced Automotive Engineer expert in production activities will be responsible for training engineers and teach them how to plan, develop, control and manage production systems in the automotive sector.
Through teachings like process engineering, industrial system design, production management and optimisation, automation technologies and solutions, digital technologies of the factory 4.0 and quality control process management, he/she will be able to develop the most advanced sportscar production systems
