Bachelor's degree in

Automotive Engineering

How is a vehicle designed? How is it built? How is the whole process managed?

Come and learn all of these things with us, not just at the theoretical level but with the companies that work on them.

Jornada de Portes Obertes - VIRTUAL

Dates: 26 de febrer - 24 d'abril - 15 de maig - 15 de juny de 2021

The bachelor’s degree in Automotive Engineering  responds to the automotive industry’s demand for engineers with very specific knowledge, who have mastered the product—the automobile and its components—and the process, that is, the manufacturing process and its management. The aim is to produce specialised engineers who have a comprehensive view of the automotive industry and its entire value chain.

The automotive engineering sector is one of the most globalised and competitive sectors and it continuously incorporates innovations and technical improvements in aspects such as safety, energy efficiency and environmental protection. It has a strong tradition in Catalonia and has become a strategic economic sector.

Great demand

A demand for 100 engineers per year up to 2030 is foreseen in the automotive sector.


The bachelor's degree has the support of the Automotive Industry Cluster of Catalonia.

Academic itinerary

It provides direct admission to the master's degree in Automotive Engineering at the ETSEIB.


Awards program for the best files.

Programmed practices

A significant part of the work placements take place in leading companies in the sector, which is why part of the teaching is done in English.
