The Esslingen Master of Engineering in Automotive Systems (ASM) aims to give students a specialised professional qualification in sophisticated automotive systems. Students have to choose one of the three electives: Vehicle Dynamics, Software Based Automotive Systems or Car Electronics. The lectures are complemented practically through cross-cultural, interdisciplinary student projects. Through these, students are given the opportunity to share not only their specialised knowledge but also their cultural backgrounds in real-life working scenarios.

First semester - foundations:

Mathematical Methods in Engineering; System Design; Simulation and Control 1

Second semester - advanced courses/electives:

For all electives: Simulation and Control 2

Elective "Vehicle Dynamics":

  • Ride and Handling: Handling, Suspension Modelling;
  • Powertrain: Transmission Systems, Transmission Control and Engine Control Systems

Elective "Software Based Automotive Systems":

  • Automotive Communications: Onboard and Offboard Communication Systems, Automotive Controller Development Methods and Lab Computer Simulation and Modelling
  • Reliable Embedded Systems: Safety and Security, Selected Topics on Real-Time Systems

Elective "Car Electronics":

  • Electric and Electronic Architecture: Electronics and Communications, Prototyping and Simulation, Optical Systems and Lab Automotive Electronic Control Circuits in Operation
  • Packaging and Integration: Packaging and Wiring Harness, Automotive EMC, Electronics and Communications 2 and Lab Distributed Applications

Third semester - Master's Thesis:

In their final thesis students demonstrate the full extent of their scientific and practical engineering knowledge of a specific subject. Master's theses can be performed individually or in a team, either at the university or, preferably, within a company. Its duration is six months, including training in softskills.
