About

To meet the challenges of the automotive industry, engineers are required to improve their technical knowledge and skills in a variety of topics that are beyond the realm of traditional engineering curricula. They can do this with the Automotive Systems Engineering program of University of Michigan-Dearborn.

Overview

The automotive industry of the twenty-first century is advancing at a rapid pace with great emphasis on lightweight structures, alternative energy sources, high efficiency powertrains, intelligent control systems, lower emissions, robust design and manufacturing, as well as improved comfort and safety.

Today's automotive engineers are expected to make connections among different areas of knowledge and integrate them in ways that benefit the automotive industry, society and the environment. Automotive engineers must be well grounded in their own areas of specialty. They must also have a good understanding of the related disciplines, be skilled in synthesis, analysis and design, work effectively in a team environment, and adopt a 'systems' approach. 

In response to these needs, the College of Engineering and Computer Science offers a 30-credit-hour interdisciplinary graduate degree program leading to a master's degree in Automotive Systems Engineering. Many courses in this program are specifically designed to address the new and emerging technology in the automotive industry. Students in this program will not only learn about advanced technologies, but also how to apply them in practice for creative design and problem solving.

The Automotive Systems Engineering program of University of Michigan-Dearborn provides, depth in the area of automotive engineering, breadth across engineering disciplines of electrical, industrial, mechanical, manufacturing and materials engineering, and an opportunity to gain industrially relevant engineering design or research experience through a capstone project or a master's thesis.
