Bodyworks and Automotive Materials

Master's degree. Face-to-face.

Presentation

UPC School

In advanced economies, and increasingly in emerging economies such as China and India, the automotive industry is of a great strategic importance. The automotive industry creates 2.3 million jobs, as well as 10 million jobs indirectly across Europe, and approximately 100 million jobs worldwide. In order to compete in this innovative and globalized industry, car makers need highly qualified professionals to excel. This has created opportunities for talented people who are seeking for an attractive and rewarding career development.

Spain is the second highest producer of cars in Europe, and the 8th worldwide. Up to now, the graduate and postgraduate courses available in Spain, have not met the educational needs of the car industry. Thus, the educational offerings have been traditionally characterized by a low practical and general focus. In contrast, the master's degrees Bodyworks and Automotive Materials (CARMAT) offers a highly specialized, up to date and practical education. The aim of CARMAT is twofold: (1) to speed up the path to get a job within the car industry for people that are passionate about cars, and (2) to accelerate the professional development of those already working in the industry.

Our teaching methods are based on the principle of learning by doing, as well as the development of the personal and professional skills required to succeed within the car industry. In the classroom sessions and visits to SEAT (the Spanish brand belonging to the Volkswagen group) facilities, students learn the necessary concepts which they will need to develop a project throughout the course. The project, supervised by professionals from the industry, aims to develop a real component of the car. During the project, students are faced with a complex problem which requires them to put into practice their technical, creativity and leadership skills, and to work within a team. In summary, the CARMAT postgraduate course offers students a unique learning experience based on contests exclusive to the course, and direct contact with professional from the car industry.

Finally, to remark that the students of the CARMAT course, who are not working, have the opportunity to do a paid internship within the Technical Centre of SEAT, or other companies from the industry. In the internship, students have the chance to enhance and put into practice the knowledge gained from the course, as well as to network with professional in the industry.

Aims

The main goal of the CARMAT master's degrees is to train students and professionals so that they are able to develop successfully their professional careers within the fields of the design, development and manufacturing of the components and parts of the vehicle bodywork. For this, we offer a highly specialized education which makes possible that students who pass successfully the course are able:

1. To understand the requirements for the design, development and manufacturing of the components which form the vehicle bodywork.

2. To know the organizational structure, processes and phases of the project for the design, development, manufacturing and approval of a vehicle.

3. To use the software CATIA v5 for the optimal design and development of the components and parts which form the bodywork.

4. To develop leadership, creativity, complex problem-solving skills, and competences for working within a team.

Who is it for

Graduate students from Industrial Engineering, Materials Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Bachelor of Science, or similar, undergraduate or graduate.

Professionals with proven experience in the automotive industry.
