Scuderia Toro Rosso is widely known for supporting young talent on and off the race track. Taking a step further, Scuderia Toro Rosso have collaborated with Motor Vehicle University of Emilia-Romagna (MUNER) to educate passionate students across the globe who aspire to be future automobile engineers.
With the help of universities of Bologna, Ferrari, Modena, Reggio Emilia and Parma, commonly known as Italy’s Motor Valley, all of them together have managed to set a benchmark in the history of Italian Motor Sport, both on 2 and 4 wheels. Lamborghini, Dallara, Ducati, Maserati, Ferrari, Magneti Marelli and of course, Scuderia Toso Rosso are classic examples topping the motorsport leader-boards across the globe.
Open to students across the world, MUNER mainly offers two MA courses, Advanced Automotive Engineering and Advanced Automotive Electronic Engineering, both run in English. The eligibility criteria expect students to hold a 3-year course degree in engineering to prove their engineering and technical knowledge.
Italian students must have 95+/110 grade in their degree, while foreign students need to have an equivalent qualification. Since English is currently the 2nd most widely spoken language in the world after Spanish, all the students are expected to have average to good knowledge of English.
For students outside the European Union (EU), applications have already started. For more information on the Advanced Automotive Engineering course (Link).
Out of 120 seats, 12 seats are available for non-EU students while the remaining are for Italian and other EU citizens. A final list of the selected students will be announced by the end of this month. From 19th June, 2017, students willing to apply for the Advanced Automotive Electronic Engineering course can register at the University of Bologna. (Link).
Both these courses cover a wide range of theory and practical work which will be held at various universities and their industry partner’s headquarters. By following the dual system pattern of learning through theory and practical, students will gain a high level of competence for the future. Hurry all you future engineers of Formula One, MotoGP, WRC and many more!
