M.Eng. in Automotive Systems
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.
The study program begins in September of each year: a master's degree can be achieved after the standard study period of three semesters (1,5 years). The language of instruction in all lectures is English. The Automotive Systems program was accredited in 2007 by ASIIN
I have positive experience with Hochschule Esslingen. The academics is blend with both theory and practical, which is ideal for any students to learn. The course structure is well organized and is in line with the Industry expectations. The assignments given by the professor's are challenging and you need creativity to solve this problems.
The professors are really nice and try always to explain complicate topics in a good way.
There are always enough space for everybody in the rooms and always enough PC's, but the screens in the rooms are sometimes too small from the back.
My priority on the study was the vehicle dynamics, but the mechanical influences from axis, tires, ... on the behaviour of a vehicle are not very well represented, so don't await too much stuff from the mechanics of a vehicle.
All in all the course is very focused on the control and on electronics, but this topics are really nice explained.
I have pursued my Master's in the year 2011-2013. I would strongly recommend the course and the university for the following reasons:
- Highly skilled and extremely helpful professors and organisers
- Great studying environment
- Valuable course content which was matching to my requirements
Overall, it is 100% worth studying in HS-Esslingen.
I had a wonderful experience during my MS. Privileged to study under Prof Schindler/Prof Gipser. Very helpful and friendly staff. Spl. mention for Mr. Brinkmann, Ms. Pohl. AWESOME is one word I can give to it overall. I am glad we choose each other:)
