Automotive and Vehicle Technology

Biotechnology | Process Automation

Learn about the construction, operation, design, and manufacturing of modern vehicles. Evaluate current and future automotive propulsion technologies, advanced combustion systems, hybrid powertrains, and alternative fuel vehicles.   Use engineering fundamentals and state- of-the-art software to identify, formulate, analyze, and solve problems related to the machine components and assemblies used in the automotive industry.

Careers: Our graduates may work to develop new hybrid and green vehicle technologies, design power and control systems, engines, and bodies, perform complex analysis on mechanical components, assemblies, and systems, conduct crash tests and safety audits, or streamline production processes in manufacturing plants.

In addition to the courses listed in the curriculum shown below, this four-year program requires 3 mandatory 4-month co-op work terms.
