Based on international trends and on incentives of national companies in vehicle industry, the partners initiated a new master program (Msc) in English: Autonomous Vehicle Control Engineer (AVCE).
The analysis of current higher education trends showed that the education of autonomous vehicles in master level in leading technical universities has great significance. In the description of these programs industrial needs are to be found, which also provides the basis of our new master programs.
The main focus is on the continuous development of different transportation modes into the direction of autonomous functions. The planned master programs will offer knowledge in the fields of intelligent environment and control of vehicles.
Nowadays changes generated by info communication technology have fundamental effect on transport vehicles, infrastructure, passengers and in general the society. In the area of vehicle industry the continuous expansion of automation can be observed. One main pillar is the development of the environment sensing in vehicles, the spreading of communication technologies and the performance growth of electronic control devices. For more information about the application process, please visit the website of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics.
During the 4 semester long MSc study, our aim is to provide the required knowledge to graduates in the fields of vehicle technology, control theory, intelligent systems, information technology and communications. The students will be prepared to take part in designing, developing and manufacturing autonomous vehicles, simulate networks, test and validate processes and work in a complex environment with various sensor data. The students will also be able to facilitate the creation of safe and energy-saving operation of autonomous transportation systems considering environmental and sustainable parameters.
The cooperation with our industrial partners guarantees that students will be able to participate in the latest research and development projects. The integration of the requirements of the industrial partners and project results to the curriculum leads to a unique education programme, that helps to achieve a specific knowledge transfer between the university and the vehicle industry. The students will also be prepared to management tasks and to creatively participate in Research & Development related tasks. These studies prepare students for our PhD programmes.
The credits of the subjects correspond to the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS).
The curriculum is more and more popular. More than half of the applicants are foreign students.
We are participating in a programme called DRIVES.
Here you can find our courses:
DRIVES is developing human capital solutions for all levels of the automotive value chain. The Development and Research on Innovative Vocational Educational Skills project (DRIVES) will deliver human capital solutions to the whole automotive supply chain through the establishment of an Automotive Sector Skills Alliance, covering all levels of the value chain (vehicle production, automotive suppliers and automotive sales and aftermarket services).
Details on DRIVES activities are available down here.
This platform offers courses developed by DRIVES partnership, a blueprint endeavour for sectoral cooperation on skills in the Automotive sector, launched in 2018. The training materials result from identified reskilling and upskilling needs stemming from the sector after new mobility dynamics and automotive industrial transformations.Training courses can be used free of costs by individuals or companies to upskill or reskill their employees or by education and training providers in their courses only through the DRIVES learning platform.
