Motorvehicle University of Emilia-Romagna (MUNER) alberto
WHO WE ARE
The Motorvehicle University of Emilia-Romagna (MUNER) is an association which was strongly advocated by the Emilia-Romagna Region, and it was created thanks to a synergetic connection among universities that are synonymous with advanced training – Università di Bologna, Università di Ferrara, Università di Modena e Reggio Emilia, Università di Parma -, and the automakers that represent the excellence of Made in Italy in the world and are historically rooted in this territory: Automobili Lamborghini, Dallara, Ducati, Ferrari, Haas, Magneti Marelli, Maserati, and Toro Rosso.
Two international and inter-university master’s degree programs, taught entirely in English, will start from the next academic year, 2017/2018: Advanced Automotive Engineering and Advanced Automotive Electronic Engineering.
The Motorvehicle University of Emilia-Romagna hub aims at attracting to the region the best university students from all over the world, with the goal of training and introducing into the corporate world tomorrow’s engineers, the professionals who will design street and competition vehicles, sustainable propulsion systems and subsystems for smart features, and production plants in keeping with Smart Manufacturing.
WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR
The Motorvehicle University of Emilia-Romagna is looking for young talents from Italy and the rest of the world with a passion for innovation in two- and four-wheeled vehicles.
A maximum of 150 students will be admitted to the master’s degree programs each year: 120 for Advanced Automotive Engineering and 30 for Advanced Automotive Electronic Engineering. They will be selected after a careful evaluation of their achievements and a technical and motivational interview. Besides, the possession of adequate English language skills (level B2) will be verified.
THE MASTER’S DEGREE PROGRAMS
Advanced Automotive Engineering
The curriculum is structured as a common initial semester held at the Università di Modena e Reggio Emilia, followed by five specialized professionalizing paths at the Bologna, Ferrara and Parma universities.
The program aims at providing knowledge and skills related to the design of high-performance and competition two- and four-wheeled motorvehicles. Advanced automotive engineers will acquire skills in the areas of the design and development of the main subsystems and parts related to: combustion, hybrid and electric motor propellers; energy storage and conversion solutions; ”cold” architecture of two- and four-wheeled street vehicles, both for production and competitions; production systems with typical features of the new manufacturing 4.0 environment (manufacturing robotics, supply chain design and management, big data, etc.).
The training will follow five professionalizing paths, assigned based on students’ ranking positions and stated interests: “Advanced Powertrain” (25 people max in Bologna + 25 people max in Modena), “Advanced Motorcycle Engineering” (25 people max in Bologna), “Advanced Sportscar Manufacturing” (25 people max in Bologna), “High-Performance Car Design” (25 people max in Modena), “Racing Car Design” (25 people max in Modena, second year in Parma).
Advanced Automotive Electronic Engineering
The first year of the program will take place at the Università di Bologna while the second year at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia.
The inter-university master’s degree program in Advanced Automotive Electronic Engineering aims at training electronic engineers with a professional profile oriented towards the design, development and production of the main subsystems that compose two- and four-wheeled street vehicles – with a special focus on the premium and motorsports market segments – and towards the development and management of the relative technological and productive processes. The specialization will transmit in particular professional skills in the field of information engineering, building the ability to design and engineer the most advanced electronic, IT and connectivity systems for the automotive industry.
Automotive electronic engineers, in fact, design and develop the subsystems that acquire and manage information, ensuring that vehicles are equipped with the smart features that will increasingly provide differentiation in the future of the industry, connecting with other disciplines in the field of Information and Communication Technologies (telecommunications, IT and automation).
