The first two semesters of this multidisciplinary program which includes the construction of engine vehicles, the technology of production and its specifics for vehicles, marketing, and management are taught at one of the following universities:
- CTU in Prague (in English)
- ENSTA Bretagne (in French)
- TU Chemnitz (in German)
- IT Bandung (in English)
Those who choose to study their first year at CTU in Prague will be provided with an intense class of French with native speakers at the Cultural Institute at the French Embassy in Prague. German classes might be alternatively provided by native speakers as well. Students may also choose to study any of the languages taught by the Department of Foreign Languages at the faculty of Mechanical Engineering.
The second-year students choose one of the specializations at the partner universities in France, Netherlands, Germany, and CTU in Prague.
Vehicle Dynamics and Clean Driveline Control Systems
This program is taught in English at the partner university HAN in Arnhem, Netherlands. The graduates gain deep knowledge of vehicle dynamics and design control algorithms of electro-mechanical vehicle systems. The necessary knowledge is also deepened in the fields of economics, management, and computer-aided engineering disciplines. The program also includes guided practice during which the student works on his/her diploma thesis.
Architecture des véhicules / Construction of Vehicles
This program is taught in French at the partner university ENSTA Bretagne in Brest, France. The program further deepens the fundamental theoretical disciplines necessary to understand the functions and construction of vehicle aggregates as e.g. thermomechanics, fluids mechanics, mechanics of rigid and deformable bodies, and electronics. The necessary knowledge is also deepened in the fields of economics, management, and computer-aided engineer disciplines. The program also includes guided practice during which the student works on his/her diploma thesis.
Calculus et Modélisation / Calculations and Modelling
This program is taught in French at the partner university ENSTA Bretagne in Brest, France. The graduates gained deep knowledge in simulation and simulation using finite elements focusing on motor vehicles. The theoretical foundations of mathematics have been appropriately extended. The necessary knowledge is also deepened in the fields of economics, management, and computer-aided engineer disciplines. The program also includes guided practice during which the student works on his/her diploma thesis.
This program is taught in English at CTU in Prague. The graduates gain deep knowledge in the construction of combustion engines. The students will be given detailed information about the simulation of combustion engine circulation. The program provides detailed information about filling and cooling and combustion engine accessories. Students learn the examples in the lab and project classes. The program also includes guided practice during which the student works on his/her diploma thesis.
Fuel Cell Drives
This program is taught in German at Technical University in Chemnitz in Germany. The graduates gain deep knowledge in electronic drives of vehicles, fuel cells, accumulators, electro engines, and electric transformers. Students learn the examples in the lab classes. The program also includes guided practice during which the student works on his/her diploma thesis.
Graduates of the program are trained in the construction of motor vehicles and their gear on the level necessary to carry out independent research and development of vehicles as well as leading such research. The program deepens student's fundamental knowledge of disciplines necessary for understanding the function and structure of aggregates of vehicles such as thermomechanics, fluid mechanics, mechanics of rigid and deformable bodies, manufacturing technology, and electronics. The graduate is, therefore, able to immediately engage in projects in development and construction departments of car manufacturers, design offices and they can as well start teaching at vocational schools anywhere in the world. The students are accepted to this study program upon graduation of a bachelor's program.
The first year is taught in English on CTU in Prague (Czech Republic) with the participation of lecturers from partner universities (ENSTA Bretagne and HAN).
