Students get the opportunity to select one field of study out of several options and therefore to adapt the course offer to their special interests and professional expectations. Furthermore, students enhance social and methodical skills. The international profile of the program enables students to face increasing challenges and standards of global markets.
The regular period of study consists of seven semesters. The program is divided into two modules. The introductory module covers two theoretical semesters. The second module includes four theoretical semesters and a practical semester. Starting with the sixth semester, students will have to choose between "Drive train and chassis" and "Car body technology and design".
