The Advanced Automotive Electronic Engineering course at the University of Parma fits within a collaboration between the four major Universities in Emilia-Romagna and the main Companies involved in the design and manufacturing of automobiles and motorbikes in the premium and racing sector: Automobili Lamborghini Spa, Dallara Automobili SpA, Ducati Motor Holding Spa, FCA Group - Maserati and Alfa Romeo, Ferrari Spa, Haas F1 Team, Magneti Marelli Spa, Scuderia Toro Rosso Spa.
The aim of the Master is to educate electronic engineers with a solid knowledge of the methods and tools that make electronics the foundations of all the systems that collect, process, transmit and store information, with a particular emphasis on the electronic subsystems that are embedded in the nowadays and future vehicles. The graduate in "Advanced Automotive Electronic Engineering" is able to understand, propose and adapt what is being developed in the flourishing field of Information and Communication Technologies, playing a fundamental role in the innovation of the automotive sector whose future evolution will increasingly depend on such technologies.
The educational path has been designed in strong cooperation with companies operating the automotive sector to allow a seamless insertion of the graduated in high profile roles in the research, development and manufacturing environments focused on vehicles and their technologies.
Yet, the overall education focused on Electronics as the founding language of information-related technologies, allows finding jobs in all the contexts in which electronic devices are paired to physical systems to acquire, process, and control their behavior.
The ability of communicating with the other Information Technology disciplines, make the graduated in "Advanced Automotive Electronic Engineering" an ideal candidate to play the role of project manager in the conception, design, realization and maintenance of complex systems in which the overall functionality depends on the interaction of multiple heterogeneous systems with a strong electronic component.
Programme StructureThe main features of the master are:
- Teachers selected by an Interuniversity Coordination Committee open to the involved Companies among professors and practitioners, Italian and foreigners, with recognized experience in the field, in order to maximize teaching quality.
- Students, maximum 30 for each year, admitted to the master after a careful evaluation of their previuous academic performance and motivation based on documents and interviews.
- Teaching in two neighboring Universities: first year in Bologna, second year in Modena.
- All classes held in English, many courses with a lab part to be taken at one of the involved Universities or at the facilities of the partner Companies on a “Learning-by-Doing” logic.
- Internships for thesis or activities in “Project Working” mode, taking place within the most important industrial realities in the automotive sector or in University labs.
- 24 months
