Overview

Additional specific knowledge is gained through the program of this study in the field of power supply and vehicle systems, application of energy electronics in the vehicle, digital image and video processing and in the field of machine learning in systems of autonomous and networked vehicles. You have the possibility to start your journey online and move to the campus when the courses can be conducted safely in the classrooms.

Upon completion of the master’s (graduate) study programme in Automotive Computing and Communications , students will be able to:

  • create a project plan using appropriate project planning and management tools and techniques;
  • develop and test algorithms for effective message transmission in wireless ad-hoc vehicle networks;
  • design automotive software support: from risk analysis to a functionally safe concept;
  • develop one’s own software solution to the given problem for the target architecture and correct the faults that occurred in its creation;
  • design and test embedded computing systems with peripheral units;
  • specify and explain the functioning of developed and applied automotive computer systems;
  • explain and apply automotive software diagnostics methods;
  • choose and apply appropriate deep learning methods and models to solving specific problems in intelligent transport systems;
  • analyse modes of energy flow management in a vehicle by using electronic energy converters;
  • create energy storage system models in a vehicle and perform a critical analysis of simulation results;
  • apply advanced image and video processing algorithms in real time;
  • analyse communication networks in a vehicle and define the characteristics of key protocols;
  • identify engineering tasks, necessary knowledge and skills related to manufacturing technologies, measures, procedures, regulations and norms for ensuring work safety and employment protection.
