Program & timetable


The School will tackle the four main knowledge pillars that will shape the automotive industry in the medium/long term.

Advances in industrial engineering

Cars, trucks and motorbikes have always been and will always be mechanical systems able to carry people and payloads around.

design flows, innovative mechanics, energy management, electrical vehicles, materials, advanced manufacturing, powertrains, vehicle dynamics.

Advances in information engineering

Even if we do not know yet whether the vehicles of the future will sport combustion, electric or hybrid powertrains, we do know that they will be complex electronic systems offering the highest level of local and connected intelligence that a machine can feature.

vehicular communications, cloud, IoT, 5G, autonomous vehicles, signal and data analysis, data fusion.

Ethical and legal issues

Vehicles will be complex systems, partly or completely autonomous, that will have to seamlessly integrate with the lives of human beings even more than what they do today. This will raise problems that we must be able, and ready, to face and solve.

regulations, liability, ethics of autonomous vehicles.

Soft skills

Complex systems are built out of brilliant human brains that work together with a well-defined and stubbornly pursued goal. Creativity, intellectual resource management, teamworking are general concepts that will be increasingly important for people that want to contribute to the future of automotive.

technology and business trend understanding, optimization, soft skills and project management, creativity nurturing.
