Program Description

Please find out the measures devised by the University of Bologna to begin next academic year in the best possible way.

Academic year 2020/21 – For the first semester, remote teaching activities will run in parallel with classroom teaching activities

During the first six months of a.y. 2020/21, the University of Bologna will offer blended teaching activities, held in classrooms but also accessible remotely. During the past months, the University has worked to ensure all classroom activities can resume for the greatest possible number of students while complying with safety regulations and protocols.

The University is focusing on two aspects: on the one hand, it is working on how to adapt classrooms using new technological infrastructure; on the other, it is implementing the transformations necessary to assist teachers in the process of constantly improving teaching methods.

The Master’s Degree Program in Advanced Automotive Engineering AAE is an inter-university program jointly offered by the Universities of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Bologna, Ferrara, and Parma. AAE is supported by the most prestigious companies in Emilia-Romagna operating in the automotive sector at the international level. It is aimed to provide knowledge and skills related to the design of motor vehicles and motorcycles that are high-performance and suitable for competitions. From hybrid and electric motor propellers to production systems with typical features of the new manufacturing 4.0 environment. The following three curricula are offered by the Department of Industrial Engineering at UNIBO:

  • Advanced Powertrain (AAE-AP) is focused on the planning and control of endothermic, electric, and hybrid powertrains, the main solutions for electromechanical energy conversion and storage, powertrain design, and production technology as well as the most advanced motor control and calibration techniques.
  • Advanced Motorcycle Engineering (AAE-AME) covers aspects of mechanical engineering, electronics, and industrial design for high-performance and racing motor vehicles and with particular attention to design, vibration mechanics, mechanical technology, dynamics, endothermic powertrain, and BEV design, as well as driving assistance systems.
  • Advanced Sportscar Manufacturing (AAE-ASM) covers process engineering, the design of industrial plants and systems, production management and optimization, digital technologies for factory 4.0, and quality assurance process management.
