What will the world look like in 10 to 20 years’ time? No one knows, but one thing is for sure: mobility is changing rapidly. There is more need than ever for creative solutions that combine our mobility requirements with sustainable, social and technical developments. Hybrid cars, zero-emission vehicles, increasingly tighter safety regulations. These are but some of the challenges facing the worldwide automotive industry. In order to keep up, the automotive industry needs highly educated young professionals across the globe. After graduating, you can start your international career wherever you like. The industry needs you!

The Automotive Engineering course trains you in a broad range of automotive skills designed to equip you for the demands of an ever-changing global industry.

You will receive a solid grounding in technical subjects, such as mechanical engineering and chassis design. At the same time, you get thorough training in areas such as management and communication skills.

Because the focus of the course is practical, you team up with other students to carry out projects focused on future mobility concepts.

Work placement

The course has a strong international focus, so you get the opportunity to do a work placement in an international environment in your 3rd year. This allows you to broaden your knowledge in the field while learning about another culture and perhaps even picking up another language!

Career prospects

The Automotive Engineer works within the automotive industry. This industry comprises a wide range of businesses, institutes and agencies active in the research and development, manufacturing and sales of products associated with automobiles or transport.

Automotive engineers have a broad overall knowledge of the product (the car), which enables them to contribute to all departments. They are therefore able to discuss a wide range of subjects with people from other disciplines.

Automotive engineers invariably make decisions based on the combination of technology, commerce and business considerations. This sets them apart from commerce and business professionals, who lack technical knowledge, as well as from the mechanical engineer, who lacks a broad overall knowledge of the different products.


Other courses at HAN University



HAN University of Applied Sciences has two campuses, located in Arnhem and Nijmegen.

Nijmegen is situated on the banks of the river Waal, in the east of The Netherlands, near to the German border, and is the oldest city in Holland - recently celebrating its 2,000th anniversary.

Arnhem, the capital of the province of Gelderland, is only 15km from Nijmegen and lies partially in the hills at the edge of National Park De Veluwe, a striking area of woods and heath. Arnhem is a ‘green’ city, where people take pleasure in living, working and recreation.
