Second cycle degree

Electronic Engineering for intelligent vehicles

Joint degree with Universities of Bologna, Modena and Reggio Emilia and Ferrara

The degree programme

The ubiquity of Electronic and Information Technology in today’s and tomorrow’s vehicles is a mandatory requirement for achieving safer, greener, and more enjoyable drive.

This calls for up-to-date professionals devoted to the development, design, and integration of Electronic and Information Technology subsystems into new generation vehicles.

The aim of the Inter-University Master’s Degree in Electronic Engineering for Intelligent Vehicles (EEIV) of the Motor Vehicle University of Emilia Romagna (MUNER) is to train engineers capable of operating in this challenging and exciting field, with specific focus on the understanding of the main Electronic and Communication Systems as well as Autonomous Driving applications.

The Electronic Engineering for Intelligent Vehicles course, entirely taught in English and designed in strong cooperation with MUNER companies operating in the automotive sector, is organized in two curricula, each one of which open to 25 students: Electronic and Communication Systems (ECS) and Autonomous Driving Engineering (ADE).

The syllabus has been designed in strong cooperation with MUNER Companies operating in the automotive sector to allow seamless insertion of the EEIV graduate in high-profile roles in the research, development, and manufacturing environments focused on vehicles and automotive technologies.

After graduation

The Graduate in Electronic Engineering for Intelligent Vehicles will have a multidisciplinary training allowing to understand, propose and adapt what is developed in the flourishing field of Information and Communication Technologies, playing a key role in the innovation of the automotive sector, the future evolution of which will increasingly depend on these technologies.

Based also on the chosen curriculum the Graduate will:

Electronic and Communication System (ECS): understand the operating principles and design constrains of the fundamental electronic and communication devices and subsystems as well as how they can be controlled and securely connected with each other and the surrounding environment in automotive and motorbike applications.

Autonomous Driving Engineering (ADE): be able to deal with concepts, methods and architectures used to enable advanced driver assistance systems up to fully autonomous driving. They will be able to participate in concept development, design requirements, and operating strategies to provide for vehicle functionality and end-user safety, and intelligent transportation systems based on perception devices, intelligent algorithms and methods, and planning and control strategies.
