TU München: M.Sc. Automotive Software Engineering




Standard length of study: 4 semesters
Language: German



The research- and application-oriented master's programme Automotive Software Engineering involves a subject-specific specialization in the application field of automotive technology where topics like computer science, mechatronics, electrical and information technology and economics are linked. As a result, programming languages, modeling techniques, tools and processes can be treated in depth and put in practice.


Course Content

The Master's in Automotive Software Engineering is an innovative program that aims to equip students with the key scientific and engineering knowledge and practical skills required for employment in the automotive engineering sector, as well as in a broad range of other sectors.


Technical advances in this field are happening quickly and the last three decades have seen a steady rise in software-based, integrated functions in cars, making them more secure, comfortable, and user-friendly. Development processes have also undergone fundamental changes, which have led to entirely new software and systems engineering requirements. Up to now, the industry has been limited by a shortage of skilled employees who are able to create and implement new processes and methods.


The Master's in Automotive Software Engineering aims to address the urgent need for highly trained engineers with an automotive background. Automotive software engineers analyze, design, and optimize processes and systems in highly complex real-time environments. They are not only sought after in the automotive industry, but also in aerospace, automation, and engineering environments.
