The collaborative degree shows a level of commitment to the development of technical and professional skills that would impress any employer. Students – and potential employers – also benefit from the knowledge gained from faculty at two institutions. With the increasing globalization of the technical workforce, degrees that span institutions and provide an international perspective are particularly valuable.
In today’s competitive technology environment, top opportunities are going to skilled engineers who have a wide-range of professional capabilities.

The European Commission estimates 12 million jobs within the European automotive industry. The industry also has strong economic connections to many other developing industrial sectors. There is therefore already a strong and growing need for a qualified workforce in this domain in Europe and throughout the world.
Graduates are expertly qualified to work in R&D departments that focus on the development of hybrid/electrical vehicles as well as parts of these vehicles as powertrains.
