Electric Vehicle Engineering

Course content

The Program 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 master’s Degree Course in Electric Vehicle Engineering (EVE) lasts two academic years. 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 studentsAdmissions 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.

Over 80.000 students

Internships 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 motorcycles will be responsible for designing and developing high-tech motorvehicles, both standard and racing-specific. He/She will deal with and manage aspects that are typical of electronic and automotive engineering with a focus on industrial design, specific to motorcycles.
