Integrated Vehicle Systems Specialization

Make Yourself Indispensable
Productivity, teamwork and the ability to communicate across disciplines are essential elements for success in today's highly competitive automotive industry. Purdue's distance automotive specialization opportunities within the MSE / MS degree are for engineers and other technical specialists who wish to gain new knowledge and sharpen skills of Integrated Vehicle Systems in order to perform at even higher levels of productivity and effectiveness while advancing their career objectives.

The Integrated Vehicle Systems Specialization is available within the interdisciplinary MSE and MS degree programs. It provides the opportunity to focus on a specific automotive arena such as design; structures and materials; noise, vibration and harshness; quality and more, as well as to broaden engineering perspectives through exploring new topics and areas of interest. There are no core courses - once admitted you work with a faculty committee to design a curriculum that is tailored to fit your individual needs and goals.
