AUTOMOTIVE ENGINEERING

PROGRAM SUMMARY

  • Bachelor of Engineering (Automotive)
  • Duration: 4 years
  • No. of credits: 140 credits
  • Medium of instruction: English
  • Tuition fee: approx. 16,700 USD*
    (*for studying 4 years in Vietnam)

OVERVIEW

Automotive Engineering combines the science of mechanics, electricals and materials, which provides students with the basic principles of engineering together with the modern vehicle design requirements in terms of safety, fuel economy and industrial manufacturing.

CAREER OPPORTUNITY

Students graduating from this program are able to work across the whole product design lifecycle. Graduates can do one or more of the three branches of the Automotive Engineering fields:

  • Design: Designing new products and improving the existing ones.
  • Research and Development: Finding solutions to engineering problems
  • Production: Planning and designing new production process.

Graduates may also work in any consulting establishments and Technology Transfer Center related to automotive engineering.

TRANSFER OPPORTUNITIES

Students have 2 options:

Option 1:

Students study at BKU (HCMUT) for 4 years and get the Bachelor of Automative Engineering awarded by BKU (HCMUT).

Option 2:

After completing 02 years at BKU (HCMUT), students with financial and academic eligibility may transfer to our partner universities the later 02 years to complete their study for Bachelor degree. The official bachelor degree is awarded by the partner universities.

BKU (HCMUT) is currently working to associate the program with our partner universities in USA and Australia. The information will be updated here soon.
