OVERVIEW

Automotive Engineering combines the science of mechanics, electricals and materials, which provides students with the basic principles of engineering together with the modern vehicle design requirements in terms of safety, fuel economy and industrial manufacturing.

CAREER OPPORTUNITY

Students graduating from this program are able to work across the whole product design lifecycle. Graduates can do one or more of the three branches of the Automotive Engineering fields:

  • Design: Designing new products and improving the existing ones.
  • Research and Development: Finding solutions to engineering problems
  • Production: Planning and designing new production process.

Graduates may also work in any consulting establishments and Technology Transfer Center related to automotive engineering.

TRANSFER OPPORTUNITIES

Students have 2 options:

Option 1:

Students study at HCMUT for 4 years and get the Bachelor of Automotive Engineering awarded by HCMUT.

Option 2:
