The Green DRIVE project (Green Development, Research and Innovation in Vehicle Engineering) is developing a Joint Master’s Degree in Sustainable Automotive Engineering (JMDSAE) at EIGSI La Rochelle - Engineering School that will train engineers in the skills and knowledge they need to work in the automotive industry of the future.
You will study the first year of the Master’s degree in 3 out of the 4 participating universities; that is, in 3 different countries. This rich multi-cultural background will help to develop your ability to adapt quickly and to work in different international environments. The Green DRIVE Joint Master’s Degree in Sustainable Automotive Engineering is a 2-year course of 120 credits offered at the EIGSI - École d'ingénieurs généralistes.During the second year of the Master offered at you will work for 6 months either in industry or in a research laboratory. Our associated partners are leaders in the automotive field and you will be part of innovative and exciting projects. After this period of work placement, you will have a further 6 months to work on your thesis in either one of the participating universities or in another approved institution or organisation.
- All classes will be taught in English.
- Classes in the language of each country where you study will be available.
- Industrial partners will be support the Joint Master’s Degree in offering students internships.
- It is possible to combine both the internship and the thesis into a single year-long project.
- Large multi-year projects can also be carried out by successive groups of students.
Potential topics include
- System approach involving vehicle and powertrain components simulation.
- Energy storage system simulation, ageing analysis.
- Vehicle optimisation taking into account greenhouse gas emissions, dynamic and range performance for conventional, hybrid and electric cars.
- Transport organisation.
- New fuels.
- Impact analysis.
Within that context, industrial partners will have at their disposal a pool of well trained, highly motivated students to help in their research and development activities.
High-level professionals from industry can also be a valuable source for direct participation in teaching activities either in the regular subjects or for guest seminars on specific topics.

- The ‘scholarship student’: a student who meets the financial criteria for obtaining a study grant from the Flemish Community.
- The ‘near-scholarship student’: has a reference income of a max. € 1,512 above the upper limit of the study grants.
Category 2 : All other students
Belgian students can belong to Category 1 or Category 2. All other students can only belong to Category 2.
Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
Apply and win up to €10000 to cover your tuition fees.
