in Automotive

 Answers to the development opportunities that the automotive industry of the center area of the country offers.

Curriculum: 1.5 years (3 semesters)

Campus: Toluca



The M. Sc. in Automotive Engineering (MIR) answers to the development opportunities that the automotive industry of the center area of the country offers. Attentive to this opportunity alcove, the ITESM Campus Toluca has do efforts for tighten relations with this industry establishing programs of technology and scientific development through the creation of the Mechatronics Automotive Research Center (CIMA). Like part of this effort, the CIMA has created the M.Sc. in Automotive Engineer program with the objective of educate specialists able of give solution to engineer problems established in the automotive industry.

The graduated student of this program will can design, implement and optimize the automotive systems, contributing to the technology development design mechanic, manufacture and energy conversions systems and emission control aspects. The first methodology approach is the intensive use of the computer for design, analysis, simulation, manufacture, instrumentation and integration of automotive systems with the pragmatic orientation toward the technology development and the applied research. More information at:

To train specialists that are able to solve automotive industry issues. Graduates can design, deploy, and optimize automotive systems to contribute to technological development in manufacturing, electronic, and power systems.

  • Leaders in design and improvement of automotive systems
  • Professionals in carrying out engineering and research projects
  • Graduates that promote the creation of automotive industry companies focused in service, manufacturing or technical consulting
  • Professionals capable of pursuing a PhD


The program is conceived for professionals, faculty members, and researchers of the engineering field in manufacturing design, power systems and production management.

The M.Sc. in Automotive Engineering program, has been designed based in the feedback received from different directives of automotive enterprises installed in the country. The M.Sc. is oriented to professionals graduated engineer in the design, manufacture, energy conversion, emission control and production administration areas, that pretend achieve directive levels in the industrial branches of the automotive engineer as much as technical or administrative areas.

The student graduated will be capable of manage and/or incorporate him to enterprises dedicated to the design, analysis, manufacture, instrumentation, and car assemble and car peaces, as soon as the mechanic, electronic and mechatronic analysis of automotive systems.

The students graduated will be educated for work basically in areas of research and technology development in the lines of manufacture, design, analysis, and energy conversion and emissions control.
