CEOWORLD magazine

Technological advancements after industrialization have led to the need to devote resources to automotive engineering. Still, it wasn’t until recent decades that the field began to attract a significant number of students to universities that offered courses in it. Today, many automotive engineering graduates go into various fields of related work such as safety engineering, automotive development, quality management and whatever. Their role is only getting bigger and more important than ever as the world dumps its resources to bridge the gap between the masses and the nations.
In today’s article, I want to list a few universities where you can get the best education and training in automotive engineering. While the conventional rankings like Harvard University and Oxford University are already known for their courses in engineering in general, there are selected universities that are known specifically for their courses in automotive engineering. We will limit our focus to such universities.

So, without further ado, here are 5 universities (in no particular order) best known for studying automotive engineering:

  1. HAN University of Applied Sciences, the Netherlands.
    HAN University of Applied Sciences has long been known for its reputation in automotive engineering and is one of the largest universities in the country. Founded in the year 1996, the academic structure has 64 bachelor’s degrees and 18 master’s degrees. The disciplines in which these programs are offered include Sports and Exercise, Health, Education and Training, Engineering and Life Sciences, and Business Administration, Management and Law. The university gives an impulse to the learning process, promotes and supports various research groups and companies and conducts extensive research where necessary.
  2. Vilnius Gediminas Technical University, Lithuania.
    VILNIUS TECH, or Vilnius Gediminas Technical University, Lithuania, is one of the most prestigious universities in the country. Largely focused on the courses related to science and engineering, there are a total of 10 faculties including Civil Engineering, Transportation Engineering, Fundamental Sciences, Electronics, Creative Industries, Architecture and Business Management. Research is fundamental to the purpose of VILNIUS TECH; the university has made infrastructural incorporations in the form of research institutes, centers and laboratories that conduct high-profile national research from time to time.
  3. Tsinghua University, China.
    Those who have been eyeing international rankings for a while should have expected a Chinese university on the list — and Tsinghua University has made a leap up those rankings in recent years. It is a premier C9 League university best known for its academic courses and research activities in the fields of business, politics, science and engineering. It is consistently ranked as the best in Asia and receives extensive government support which is reflected in its many national projects. The university is also home to the Intellectual Property Summer Institute which was established in conjunction with Franklin Pierce Law Center of Concord.
  4. The University of Texas, Austin, USA.
    Often referred to as a Public Ivy, the University of Texas is one of the frontrunners when it comes to academic research. It consists of 18 colleges and schools, including Dell Medical School, College of Liberal Arts, Jackson School of Geosciences, and Cockrell School of Engineering. All these colleges and schools are actively involved in research activities whose expenditure often exceeds hundreds of millions of dollars per year. The Cockrell School of Engineering is hailed as one of the best engineering schools and is best known for its automotive engineering courses. The University of Texas is known for being highly selective in the admissions process, especially in the disciplines related to science and engineering.
  5. University of Michigan, USA.
    Located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the University of Michigan, or UMich for short, was founded in 1817 and is the state’s oldest such institution. It includes several colleges and schools as part of its organization, including those in medicine, nursing, graduate studies, education, public health, law, dentistry, and social work. As for its research activities, the university is designated for high research activities. In addition, the university is a founding member of the prestigious Association of American Universities, which exemplifies its propensity to expand science through meaningful research.
