Overview

The Automotive Systems Design programme from Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e)  starts with a year of advanced education, followed by a major design project of eight to twelve months in a company.

MSD is positioned as a sub-track of ASD. It's the intention to give it the status of a separate PDEng program as soon as possible.

The designer's programs lead to a Professional Doctorate in Engineering (PDEng degree). These programs are given under the banner of 4TU.School for Technological Design, Stan Ackermans Institute, a joint initiative of the four universities of technology in the Netherlands.

Program graduates will be awarded a certified diploma and the degree 'Professional Doctorate in Engineering' (PDEng). Their name will be entered in the PDEng register of the Royal Dutch Institute for Engineers (KIVI). The program is affiliated  to the British Association of Engineering Doctorates (AEngD).

Career

After completing this post-master program the graduate shall:

  • Have a sound background of knowledge and experience in using state-of-the-art methods and techniques for design, development, and implementation of one of the disciplines underlying the multidisciplinary field of high-tech automotive systems
  • Be aware of relevant industry's best-practices in the context of business developments where products are becoming more multidisciplinary, increasingly complex and increasingly interconnected and distributed; where markets are becoming increasingly competitive with an ever shorter time-to-market; and where projects are becoming larger, more complex,  increasingly multidisciplinary, and multi-site.
  • Have a scientific approach to design. A graduate should be capable of systematically exploring the available design options and be proficient in motivating the appropriateness of the particular design choices made for the context they apply to.
  • Be able to take a leading role in solving multidisciplinary problems and have the competences to cooperate effectively and efficiently in various roles in an international and multidisciplinary project-oriented environment.
  • Effectively participate in a team in the design and development of complex, innovative products from all disciplines relevant for the high-tech automotive industry.
  • Collaborate with engineers from other disciplines for the realization of the aforementioned products.
  • Technically lead a team of engineers and designers in an automotive environment.

This results in a number of competitive advantages for a career in the design and development of products and services for the high-tech automotive industry.
