Master’s degree courses dedicated to innovation in the automotive industry
Registration is now open to European students for the international and inter-university Master’s degree courses dedicated to six professional profiles: Advanced Powertrain, Advanced Motorcycle Engineering, Advanced Sportscar Manufacturing, High Performance Car Design, Racing Car Design e Advanced Automotive Electronic Engineering.
Students can register online through two portals:
Italian students and international students from the countries of the European Union must apply by July 28, 2017 to access the later stages of the selection process.
A total of 150 students will be selected to launch the first year of the six training programs: 130 places are reserved to citizens and 20 to non-EU citizens.
Modena, July 6, 2017 – The calls for entry have now officially been released for the enrollment of Italian and EU students in the international and inter-university Master’s degree courses promoted by the Motorvehicle University of Emilia-Romagna (MUNER), which are dedicated to six areas of specialization: Advanced Powertrain, Advanced Motorcycle Engineering, Advanced Sportscar Manufacturing, High Performance Car Design, Racing Car Design and Advanced Automotive Electronic Engineering.
University students from all over Europe have until July 28 to complete their applications for admission to the degree programs and access the later stages of the selection process, which, in accordance with the methods described in the two calls, will designate 150 talents from all over the world for the creation of the first classes of the Motorvehicle University of Emilia-Romagna.
The association was strongly endorsed by the regional administration of Emilia-Romagna and is made up of four universities in the region - the University of Bologna, the University of Ferrara, the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, the University of Parma - and of the motor companies that represent the world’s top Italian automotive products, whose history is deeply rooted in the territory: Lamborghini, Dallara, Ducati, Ferrari, Haas F1 Team, HPE Coxa, Magneti Marelli, Maserati and Toro Rosso.
“Through the Motorvehicle University of Emilia-Romagna, companies, universities and institution have united to form a unique territorial system to create and bolster innovation in the automotive industry,” said Andrea Pontremoli, CEO of Dallara Automobili and the new President of MUNER. “Our goal is to attract the world’s best students with the best training programs. The courses of the six professional profiles with be held by the best teachers of the four universities, by visiting professors and by professionals from the various companies. In addition, the companies will provide locations and state-of-the-art labs and equipment such as engine test benches, static and dynamic benches, professional driving simulators and wind tunnels to provide students with training that is in step with the industry’s technological innovation."
Italian, EU or foreign students regularly residing in the countries of the European Union who wish to enroll in the Advanced Automotive Engineering Master’s degree course must apply for admission by 1:00 pm on July 28, following the instructions provided by the University of Modena and Reggio-Emilia (UNIMORE) at the following link: http://www.international.unimore.it/bandilan.html.
Candidates will be selected through an admission test that will be held on Monday, September 4.
There will be 108 available places out of 120 (the 12 remaining places are reserved to non-EU students), which will be subdivided based on the curricula of the different courses: the High Performance Car Design course is aimed at training engineers who are capable of understanding, setting up and designing the “cold” architecture of high performance road vehicles, through the study of the main aspects of planning and design. The Advanced Powertrain course, which is offered both in Modena and Bologna, is aimed at training engineers who are capable of designing and contributing to the engineering of traditional and innovative propulsion systems.
The postgraduate course in Racing Car Design focuses on the development of the “cold” architecture of racing cars. The Advanced Motorcycle Engineering course is aimed at providing students with an in-depth knowledge of the various aspects related to the design and development of both standard and competition high-tech motorcycles. The goal of the Advanced Sportscar Manufacturing course is instead to train engineers who are capable of planning, developing, controlling and managing industry-specific automotive production systems based on today’s most modern manufacturing processes.
These specialised courses are offered in close collaboration with Lamborghini, Dallara, Ducati, Ferrari, Haas F1 Team, HPE Coxa, Magneti Marelli, Maserati and Toro Rosso. Part of the lessons will be held at the experimental facilities and laboratories of the various companies.
Italian and EU students who are interested in the Master’s Degree in Advanced Automotive Electronic Engineering will be able to enroll instead on the portal of the University of Bologna (UNIBO), at the following link:

Scuderia Toro Rosso
Scuderia Toro Rosso has been competing in the Formula 1 World Championship since 2006. The team was created with a view to form and give wings to the stars of the future coming through the ranks of the Red Bull Junior Driver Programme. The team's driver line-up is the perfect synthesis of that goal, as we go into battle with two very young and very high-skilled drivers, Carlos Sainz and Daniil Kvyat.
When the team was first established it operated partly as a satellite to Red Bull Racing, running a car designed mainly by Red Bull Technology. However, since 2010, Scuderia Toro Rosso has run completely independently, doing all the car design and manufacturing work in-house in Faenza. This necessitated a major expansion programme for the factory. The Italian side of the operation is supported by the team's wind tunnel facility in Bicester, England. Team Principal Franz Tost has been at the helm since 2005, while the technical side is managed by Technical Director James Key.
Currently the team has one win and one pole position to its name, both courtesy of Sebastian Vettel, who produced the fairytale result at the team's home race, the Italian Grand Prix in Monza, back in 2008. Since the team’s debut up until now, Scuderia Toro Rosso has improved year after year and is now a clear rival for the rest of the top mid-field teams. The aim still remains the same: to add as many points as possible to the team’s tally each race and become a fixed top contender in the Constructors’ Championship.
