NEW Deadline postponed to March 23rd, 2018 11:59 a.m. (Italian time)
The 2nd level Specializing Master’s programme in Electrified and Connected Vehicle is offered by Politecnico di Torino for academic year 2017/2018. The Programme Coordinator is Claudio Casetti, professor at the Department of Electronics and Telecommunications (DET) of Politecnico di Torino.
The duration of this 2nd level Specializing Master’s programme is 2 years  for a total of 77 ECTS.
The 2nd level specializing Master in Electrified and Connected Vehicle aims at providing training for young graduate apprentices who will be hired by FCA. The Master will develop skills for the use of innovative technologies in the automotive sector, with particular focus on technologies for the hybrid / electric vehicle and the connected vehicle.
In recent years, the need has arisen for manufacturers to introduce the hybridisation of common thermal motor vehicles in order to reduce fuel consumption and consequently polluting emissions.
Additionally, connected vehicle issues have become extremely interesting for automotive manufacturers and related industries, thanks to the progressive consolidation of standards, the pervasiveness of on-board electronic instrumentation and the emergence of appealing use cases regarding road safety, infotainment and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems.
The primary objective of the Master will thus be the formation of apparently quite different skills, which, however, are essential in the above important innovations in the future of the automotive field. Such skills are spread across mechanical engineering, electronics, energy, information technology and telecommunications.
This Master will initially provide students with the basics (vehicle mechanics, thermodynamics, communications, architecture of computers and networks) that create the common language needed to understand the following courses.
These will then address specialized skills on electric and hybrid propulsion, on vehicle on-board electronics and intervehicular communication systems.
 A project proposal for this 2nd level Specializing Master’s programme will be submitted for funding to Regione Piemonte in the framework of a specific regional call for proposals  (Avviso Pubblico per la realizzazione dei percorsi formativi per: Laurea triennale e magistrale, Diploma Accademico di I e II livello, Master di I e II livello, Dottorato di Ricerca e Diploma Accademico di Formazione alla Ricerca, Attività di Ricerca - in attuazione della D.G.R. n. 37-3617 del 11/07/2016).
In accordance with the above mentioned call for proposals, selected candidates will be hired by FCA and upon completion of the programme they will attain a 2nd level Specializing Master’s diploma.
FCA have undertaken to recruit at least fifteen apprentices.
The 2nd Level Specializing Master’s programme will begin in May 2018 and the apprentices will be recruited by FCA at the same time.
