MSc programme

The track Vehicle Engineering offers comprehensive education on automated driving, perception and modelling, dynamics and control, human factors and materials science. 


First Year

  • A solid basis in mechanical engineering with courses in Non-linear Mechanics, Physics and Measurement, Control System Design, Advanced Heat Transfer, complemented with a social course.
  • Compulsory Vehicle Engineering courses include: Intelligent Vehicles, Vehicle Dynamics and Automotive Human Factors.
  • A range of elective courses is provided on computer vision, control theory, human factors, haptics, and materials. As good programming skills are increasingly important for the Intelligent Vehicles domain, a course on robot software basics is also offered.
  • Students can furthermore select elective courses from other Master programmes at TU Delft and  elsewhere.
  • Courses and projects in Vehicle Engineering are open to students from other tracks and masters  (e.g. Computer Science, Computer Engineering,  Material Science) provided that they have the required entry level.

Second Year

  • Research Assignment (15 EC)
  • Literature survey (10 EC)
  • Thesis project (35 EC)
