Course Content

The Master’s Degree Course in Electric Vehicle Engineering (EVE) aims to train real experts in the design and development of high-tech electric vehicle, with particular emphasis on the electric subsystems that are embedded in future vehicles.

The Program lasts two academic years and it covers aspects related to electrical subsystems and their integration into traction systems, onboards fast charger and power network connections, electric drivelines, advanced automotive sensore, onboard electric power systems, energy storage systems as well thermal conditioning systems.

The number of places is limited to a maximum of 30 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 and motorcycles that are high-performance and suitable for competitions. From hybrid and electric motor propellers to production systems with the 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.

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.

At the end of second Academic Year, the Program also includes mandatory internships in private companies and lab-based thesis preparation activities carried out following a “project work” approach.

The graduate in Electric Vehicle Engineering is able to understand, propose and adapt what is being developed in the flourishing field, playing a fundamental role in the innovation of the automotive sector whose future evolution will increasingly depend on such technologies.

The overall education makes the graduated in “Electric Vehicle Engineering” an ideal candidate to play the role of project manager in the conception, design, realization and maintenance of complex systems in which the overall functionality depends on the interaction of multiple heterogeneous systems with a strong electric component.
