Automotive Engineering (Bachelor's program)

The Bachelor's program in Automotive Engineering places its focus on the entire automobile: Students gain extensive knowledge and skills relating to all important components and aspects of modern vehicles and learn about future trends of the automobile industry.

Equipped for the modern professional world

From the very beginning, many of the teaching contents are realized in project work and are developed in a team outside of large lecture halls: As much hands-on as possible instead of just dry theory.

The degree program provides a broad theoretical basis of fundamental engineering and vehicle technology knowledge coupled with a strong practical focus. This enables our graduates to independently apply and further develop scientific knowledge and methods in the field of automotive engineering in a practice-oriented manner.

Thinking outside the box

The eMotorsports Cologne Team and the FH Köln Motorsport e.V. offer opportunities to get actively involved across faculties and gain valuable experience outside of the university. The internship semester scheduled for the 6th semester provides insights into the everyday work of an engineer. Semesters abroad at one of the partner universities broaden the horizon and promote international exchange.
