Master of Engineering (MEng) in Design and Development in Automotive and Mechanical Engineering (3 semesters / 1.5 years)
Image of International Masters / MBA Programs in GermanyState-of-the-art simultaneous engineering requires modern engineers with a networked knowledge in the core and intersection areas of design, development, simulation and production technology.

Furthermore, engineers need the ability to communicate and act confidently in the international / intercultural environment of modern industry.

The new MEng in Design and Development in Mechanical and Automotive Engineering at the Esslingen University of Applied Sciences focuses on these requirements.

Course Content:
• Semester 1: Advanced Materials Technology; Safety and Reliability; Advanced Strength of Materials; Measurement and Testing Techniques; Integrity of Structures

• Semester 2: Dynamics; Vibration and Acoustics; Aero- and Fluid Dynamics; Design for Manufacturing; Team Project

• Semester 3: Master Thesis; Softskills for Engineers

• Preparation Course in German Language and Culture: This 3-week program is held in September, prior to the start of the program.

The learning approach in the master's program is both international and interdisciplinary. Interacting in teams of different cultures, languages and disciplines, students create new sources of synergy and productivity and at the same time acquire new skills.

Here, all faculties of business and engineering work side by side to share knowledge and achieve common goals.

Our program enables graduates to gain a high problem-solving competence, based on their networked knowledge in the core and intersection areas of design, development, simulation and production technology.

Master of Engineering (MEng) in Automotive Systems (3 semesters / 1.5 years)
This program is designed for students who Photos of Esslingen Graduate Schoolwish to become highly qualified engineers in the field of automotive systems for the development of feedback control systems, automotive software and automotive electronics.

In recent years, automotive systems have increased in number, scope and complexity. The automotive industry is faced with an enormous challenge: the competition in this field is strong and the requirements in the areas of cost, active and passive safety, and fuel economy are increasing steadily.

These challenges can only be met by expanding and cross-linking present automotive systems. In spite of their increasing complexity, systems with greater safety, availability, reliability and reduced fuel consumption have to be realised.

As the Esslingen University of Applied Sciences is located in the very heart of the European automotive industry, students benefit from our close links to the many industrial companies situated in the area. Among these are global players such as Audi, Behr, Bosch, Daimler, Porsche and Festo.

Through company visits, project work and case studies, students have the chance to gain knowledge in modern methods of development and production.

Course Content:
During thePicture of International Masters / MBA Programs in Germany first semester of the program, all students take the same courses. Students choose their major during the first semester and are then divided into these different fields of study during the second semester. Students of the Master of Engineering in Automotive Systems choose between three possible majors:

• Car Electronics: Graduates will have the chance to work in the field of specification, development and testing of control units and their integration in the car, taking into account car specific basic conditions like function, packaging, EMC etc.

• Software-Based Automotive Systems: Graduates will have the chance to work in the field of development, market launch and supervision of vehicle series production of suitable and innovative car communication systems and of safe software.

• Vehicle Dynamics: Graduates will have the chance to work in the field of Development and Testing of innovative automotive functions for steering, suspension and powertrain to improve ride & handling, stability, driveability and fuel economy.

In the third semester, students complete a master's thesis, preferably in the industry, and a module on soft skills.

Students have the opportunity to take a 3-week Preparation Course in German Language and Culture in September before the program starts.
