Appendix 2: Specialisations

Master's Programme, Vehicle Engineering, 120 credits (TFORM), Programme syllabus for studies starting in autumn 2018

Track, Automotive (FORA)

The road vehicle specialisation includes all types of road vehicles with main focus on cars, trucks and buses. The specialisation gives a basic knowledge of vehicle components and their functionality including modeling, validation and analysis. Furthermore, it also gives a deeper knowledge on how to model, simulate, measure and evaluate the dynamic behavior of road vehicles.

Track, Railway (FORB)

In the rail vehicle specialisation the system aspect is very important, since the different parts of a railway system like vehicle, track, electrification system and signal system strongly influence each other. Besides a broad overview on all aspects of rail vehicles traffic, dynamic vehicle-track interaction is one of the focus areas.
