Automotive Electronics (Bachelor or German Diplom Degree)

With the increasing prominence of electronics in the latest vehicles, our course in Automotive Electronics is gaining in significance. Here, you can learn all about electronics in motor vehicles from the electric car to the racing car. After the first developments of electronic control of drive and chassis systems, today innovative trends such as electronically controlled guidance systems, links between mobile phone and vehicle via “Bluetooth” or communication between vehicles using W-LAN have become dominant in the modern car. We offer you the best possible education and training in this future-oriented sector, helping supply the great demand for engineers with this specialist knowledge. In student teams you can take part in developing self-propelled electric cars (S.A.D.I.) or the Formula - Student electric car (2012: 1st place in Italy).
