Vehicle Engineering

Vehicle Engineering is a master track in the Mechanical Engineering programme. The development of automated, intelligent vehicles and electrification of powertrains and other components is transforming our future mobility. As a vehicle engineer, you are in the midst of this transformation. How will our transportation look like?

Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering

The MSc. programme in Mechanical Engineering provides an in-depth understanding of mechanical engineering disciplines. The programme trains engineers to handle the entire process of innovative thinking, design, manufacturing and operation.

Faculty of 3mE

Department of Cogitive Robotics

The Department of Cognitive Robotics and the TU Delft Robotics Institute have several research facilities, such as Toyota Prius vehicles equipped with perception features for automated driving, automated driverless shuttle buses and two BMW 5 series vehicles that are fitted with individual wheel braking, active suspension and load sensing equipment in the bearings for high-performance driving. Furthermore, fixed-base and moving-base simulators are available for normal and automated driving of passenger cars, trucks and bicycles, as well as an on road research lab for automated driving.

SAVE And education

High-quality academic education is very important to us, as it helps us to excel at what we do. Therefore, SAVE aims to provide a link between the students and the university by collecting in-depth feedback and providing the course evaluation to the university through participation in meetings with the board of studies. Additionally, we aim to inform students about important news from the university and the automotive world. Changes in the study programme, individual courses, or new internship opportunities: all are highlighted in our periodic newsletter, on social media or on this website.
