Automotive Engineering Program

Program outline

Today, many new technologies such as hybrid systems, pre-crash safety systems, lithium-ion batteries, and telematics are being integrated into automobiles. For this reason, students in the Automotive Engineering Program at Nagoya University are required to study not only mechanical or electrical and electronic engineering, but also other relevant fields such as materials, chemicals, and traffic engineering. In particular, students study the following topics:
Vehicle Engines, Vehicle Design, Vehicle Dynamics and Control, Car Electronics, Metallic, Ceramic and Organic Materials for Automobiles, Intelligent Transportation Systems, Environmental Issues and Recycling.

Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering
School-specific features

Students first study a broad range of fundamental engineering topics, core mechanical engineering topics, and fundamental subjects of automotive engineering. They then study advanced automotive engineering concepts related to the primary parts of automotive systems, such as their structures, their mechanisms and their motions. The objective of this course is to cultivate researchers and engineers who can develop lighter, stronger, and safer cars. Therefore, students study thermodynamics and fluid mechanics to develop engines; mechanisms and mechanics of materials to design car structures; and dynamics and control of safe and comfortable driving to improve drivability.

Electrical, Electronic and Information Engineering

Electrical, Electronic and Information Engineering
School-specific features

Students first study a broad range of fundamental engineering topics, core electrical, electronic/information engineering topics, and fundamental subjects of automotive engineering. They then study advanced automotive engineering concepts related to the car’s electrical systems, such as motor control, sensors, and telematics. The objective of this course is to cultivate researchers and engineers who can develop safe and energy-efficient cars. To gain these abilities, students study electromagnetism, electric and electronic circuits, power electronics, software engineering, signal processing, and functional material science

Career Prospects

Students graduating from the Automotive Engineering Program generally directly enter companies after graduation or continue their study in a postgraduate educational program, working towards becoming company researchers or university professors. Students entering companies in the automotive industry after graduation are expected to work on the research and development of safe and high-performance automobiles that contribute to a sustainable society. Since automobiles are integrated systems of various high technologies, a broad range of knowledge is necessary to develop such systems. Some students, therefore, also join laboratories other than those in mechanical or electrical engineering and contribute to companies in many other fields.
Students graduating from the Mechanical Engineering course are expected to engage in research and development of structures, vibration suppression, control of mechanical systems, mobility, production engineering in automotive plants, and so on.
Students graduating from the Electrical, Electronic/Information Engineering course are expected to work on advanced motor technologies, power electronics technologies, electric and electronic circuit development, sensing and control technologies, software development, development of electric systems of hybrid and electric vehicles, and so on.
