Master of Science in Automotive Engineering
From the Model-T to hybrid cars, the automotive industry has undergone many transformations. Its history is rich and its future exciting. With increased global competition, the development of new technologies, and the demand for more efficient, sustainable, and earth-friendly vehicles, advanced education and leadership skills can be the keys to your success in the field. What better place to hone your skills than the automotive capital of the world? Founded on the site where Henry Ford perfected the moving assembly line, Lawrence Technological University has long played a significant role in advancing the region's leadership position in the field of automotive engineering, and Lawrence Tech graduates have been responsible for thousands of automotive innovations.
Engineer Your Future
The Master of Science in Automotive Engineering at Lawrence Tech is an interdisciplinary program designed to not only help you develop your skills as an engineer, but also to help you gain a mastery of the entire vehicle. Geared toward graduates of ABET-accredited undergraduate mechanical or electrical engineering programs, this comprehensive degree was developed to meet the needs of working professionals. Classes are conveniently offered in the evenings and the program can be completed in approximately two years. The MS in Automotive Engineering consists of 30 credit hours - eight core courses and two technical electives or a thesis option. (If you are deficient in any particular subject area, pre-core crossover classes are required before you may enroll in certain core courses.)
Embracing the University's signature "theory and practice" approach to learning, the MS in Automotive Engineering offers you the in-depth conceptual knowledge you need to enhance your skills, as well as an understanding of how the real world of automotive engineering works. From strategic planning, design, and product engineering to manufacturing and engineering management, Lawrence Tech's comprehensive program can prepare you with the leadership skills needed to advance your career.
The MS in Automotive Engineering stresses the concept that an automobile is a single system in which all components and component packages are sub-systems that cannot be independently changed without affecting the entire automobile. The goal is to help you develop expertise of the vehicle as a whole, rather than its separate parts. All course work is built around this premise - that in such a complex system all areas must behave as a single, well-integrated entity if product goals are to be achieved.
