Msc.Advanced Powertrains

Czech Technical University in Prague - Faculty of Mechanical Engineering

Graduates of this degree program are trained in the field of vehicle design with the special focus to powertrains - this concerns ICEs, electric motors, gearboxes, clutches, differentials, etc. The gained knowledge is supposed to enable the graduates to be able to carry out research & development work under their leadership. During the studies, they will deepen the knowledge of basic theoretical disciplines necessary for understanding the function and structure units of modern vehicles. These include thermo mechanics, fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, strength of materials, manufacturing technology, electronics, economics, management, computer aided engineering, etc. A lot of attention is paid to vehicle dynamics control algorithms and design of electro-mechanical vehicle systems. Study is conducted in English at the Czech Technical University in Prague and in partner universities in the Netherlands and HAN ENSTA in France. The students are expected to spend each year (out of 2) at different university, hence it is a double-degree study program. Final part of a study program is a 5 month internship ? a student is supposed to find an automotive company or an automotive research institution where he/her spends at least 5 month working solely on his/her Diploma Thesis.

Graduate profile

Graduates of this degree program are trained in the field of vehicle design while aiming at different roles in the process: management, implementation, research & development. The graduates have detailed knowledge of internal combustion engines, gearboxes and other parts of a modern vehicle powertrain - this concerns design, measurement and modeling. The following topics are covered during the course of the studies: ICE thermodynamics and super/turbocharging, cooling, accessories, fuels and lubricants, theory of gears, vehicle dynamics, safety and structures, electric motors, electronics. A lot of effort is put to theoretical background to be able to apply advanced modelling approaches. These theoretical foundations serve as the basis for managing engineering simulation and experimental research and development, with examples of which are graduates acquainted in the laboratory and design classes. Study is conducted in English at the Czech Technical University in Prague and in partner universities in the Netherlands and HAN ENSTA in France. The students are expected to spend each year (out of 2) at different university, hence it is a double-degree study program. As final part of the study program is a 5 month internship at automotive company, the graduates are expected to apply all the gained knowledge within a competitive environment to demonstrate their skills. Based on the above mentioned, the graduate is expected to be linguistically and technically well-equipped, being able to immediately engage in projects in research, development and design departments of car manufacturers, design offices, or work as a teacher in automotive design schools anywhere in the world.
