Embrace an automotive engineering career all over the world
while studying in France with a Master of Science in
Automotive Engineering for Sustainable Mobility
ISAT and Polytech'Orléans, top European automotive engineering schools offer a co-accredited Master programme in Automotive Engineering for Sustainable Mobility focusing on Energy Management & Control and Vehicle Dynamics. This international programme in Europe is accredited by the French Ministry of Research and Education.
This two-year automotive engineering programme in Europe at master level (3 semesters & 1 internship semester) is entirely taught in English in both European automotive engineering universities ISAT Nevers & Polytech'Orléans.
This programme aims at preparing future automotive student-engineers for a professional career with a broad knowledge in automotive systems adapted to the new trends (hybrid propulsion, electrical vehicle, bio-materials, alternative fuels, fleet management...) while offering specialisations central to the industry & research to meet these requirements.
Core teaching units with a choice of two specialised options:
- vehicle dynamics / intelligent vehicle
- energy management & control for sustainable mobility
ISAT is located near the French Nevers/Magny-Cours F1 circuit (2-hour drive from Paris) and offers a perfect setting for the student/future automotive engineer to work on innovative projects with the motorsport SMEs & major automotive manufacturing companies, consultant organisations as well as suppliers. Additionally, other career opportunities may be found as academic researchers in automotive engineering education thanks to a close network of research centres and public-private research laboratories.
Polytech'Orléans (one-hour drive from Paris) is an engineering faculty and school that provides an extensive range of courses at degree and postgraduate level in the areas of engineering and technology. Polytech'Orléans is thoroughly involved in automotive research topics such as new engine concepts, energy management, aerodynamics in partnership with leading car manufacturers and suppliers.
