The automotive industry accounts for 10% of Spain’s GDP.

Nebrija University was a pioneer in offering a bachelor’s degree in automobile engineering as part of its commitment to tailor degrees to areas of strategic importance to the country. The degree offers students subjects founded on solid scientific principles and expands on subjects related to the car industry with a hands-on methodology from the first year.

The degree is constantly evolving to stay ahead of the latest technical breakthroughs and developments. Subjects such as “Engines”, “Regulations”, “Automotive Project Quality and Management” and “Electric Vehicles” put students at the vanguard of the state of technology and issues in the car industry.

The Bachelor’s Degree in Automobile Engineering is very closely related to the degree in Mechanical Engineering, but focussed more specifically on the car industry. However, the sector encompasses a range of sub-sectors and areas of activity that are sufficiently broad to justify a specific degree programme.

Graduates will obtain a very robust scientific foundation coupled with accurate analytical skills to solve multidisciplinary problems, while equipping them with decision-making ability and enhancing creativity and critical reasoning in the domain of automobile engineering.

Graduate engineers will have leadership and project management skills. They must also be able to handle specifications, regulations and mandatory laws and standards in the automobile industry, and analyse and assess the social and environmental impact of proposed solutions.

Graduates must organise and plan company structures. They are also provided with the scientific/technological fundamentals required for independent learning or for going on to postgraduate study to enable them to deepen their knowledge and/or specialise in various fields of engineering, particularly for admission to postgraduate study on automobiles and industrial activity.

Automobile Engineering graduates can also access the master's programme in Industrial Engineering, which involves admission to the professional body. [+info]

Employability


Career Opportunities

Automobile Engineering is a strongly interdisciplinary degree, but also goes into great depth in each of its research disciplines. This is owing to the highly competitive nature of the sector. There is currently a rapid evolution of some of the technological pillars of automotive technology, such as the use of fossil fuels in propulsion systems. Emerging technologies of electric and hybrid propulsion, fuel cells, etc., are now the focus of research by manufacturers, research centres, universities, etc.

Related areas such as materials and nanotechnologies, microelectronics and the whole range of production-related areas also require very intensive R&D. The automobile industry generates a very large number of patents every year.

In Spain in particular, although the established manufacturers are not Spanish-owned, the parts industry is to a large extent Spanish and requires the support of universities to train specialists capable of generating know-how, technology and patents. This will safeguard the future continuity of this industry in Spain, replacing cheap labour with greater added value and giving our companies the capacity to internationalise.

Hence this degree programme is clearly highly attractive from a career perspective. Graduates can work in the whole spectrum of companies and sub-sectors related to cars, both Spanish and foreign-owned, where engineers are in demand. Moreover, the automobile industry is one of the most globalised. Graduates will accordingly have a work environment that goes beyond our borders. This is already a reality with current engineers working in the automotive sector.

Development of Professional Skills

The Bologna Declaration formalized the principles on which the European Higher Education Area should be based: quality, mobility, diversity, competitiveness and employment growth.

From this, Nebrija stands as an academic model of reference, educating students with excellent individual behavior, interaction with their environment and motivated by and for constant and continuous training. The Nebrija Institute of Professional Skills works every day to achieve the differentiation of our students through the development of attitudes and skills.

The main objective is for students to achieve the best of themselves through the development and empowerment of their personal skills and resources through personal self-knowledge.

In addition, some of the professional skills that are worked on within the three seminars are those related to interpersonal skills and active communication skills and negotiation, indispensable for our students to know how to transmit ideas, to argue them, to provide information and opinions in an adequate, clear and convincing way.

Within what will be their work performance, other aspects such as teamwork, conflict resolution and project management ability will be worked on.

In the third block, skills worked on are those aimed at increasing the student's employability. They will work with tools and techniques for job searching, and perform tasks that achieve in the student a greater use of their personal skills.

For all this we have currently active experts in selection of people, professionals dedicated to personal and professional training and professionals dedicated to the world of communication and the arts.

In this way, and in a complementary way to his/her specific training, we help the student create a differentiating pattern in the social and business environment in which he/she will be immersed when he/she finishes his/her studies.
