Researchers in the field of transport and related departmental authorities identify the increasingly negative impact of the transport system on humans and environment as a strategically central issue.

MSc of Vehicle Engineering provides new knowledge and competencies to meet the challenges, in particular, in terms of introduction of a methodology for the development of green vehicles equipped with hybrid powertrains or running on alternative fuels and exploration of scientific engineering solutions for improved performance of the powertrains.

The Master+ model offers either to a masterpiece in the chosen discipline by choosing the Field Expert track or to strengthen the interdisciplinary skills by choosing the Interdisciplinary Expert track emphasizing managerial skills or a choice of a different competence to compliment the chosen discipline and achieve a competitive advantage in one’s career.

Well equipped laboratories with the latest software

Studies and research are carried out in modern laboratories of Transportation and Mechatronic Systems, Aerodynamics: wind tunnel, using DL, TRITOP equipment and VISSIM and VISUM software.
