The Department of Automotive Technologies is involved in teaching subjects related to automotive engineering, manufacturing technology and quality in the BSc programme. With decades of experience in these fields and knowledge of the latest technologies, we aim to provide our students with the broadest possible perspective.
In addition to the core subjects related to materials science, our department is involved in the BSc in Vehicle Engineering through two specializations. These are the Automotive Specialization and the Vehicle Manufacturing Specialization. More useful information about the subjects taught can be found under the BSc page.
In addition to the core curriculum of the MSc in Vehicle Engineering, which includes subjects related to modern materials science and computer-aided manufacturing, we offer three specializations. These are the Automotive vehicle engineering specialization, the Vehicle manufacturing and repairing engineer specialization and the Road and traffic safety engineer specialization.
In addition to the basic knowledge of self-driving vehicles, the MSc in Autonomous Vehicle Control Engineer in English also covers the most advanced technologies and processes, adapted to the needs of industry. The course will equip future engineers with the knowledge that our industrial partners demand, so that they can use their expertise in this field in their work.
The doctoral training (PhD) is the highest level of education offered by the faculty. The Kandó Kálmán Doctoral School prepares the doctoral students for teaching and research careers. During the four years long PhD training, the candidates have to participate in professional subjects, educational activities, and independent scientific research. The research is supported by a supervisor and the achieved results have to be presented in publications and finally in a dissertation.
Our department offers optional courses in a number of disciplines, open to all students at the university. You can find out more about these through the the page attached below.
Those who are creative, flexible, problem-recognizing and problem-solving skills, have good learning skills, memory, broad education, and information-processing abilities and are open to further training, are suitable for high-level, intensive independent and teamwork.
