Automotive Engineering


As part of the growth of the automotive sector in Morocco, the School of Automotive Engineering at the International University of Rabat is committed to training highly qualified engineers capable of meeting the needs of the transport sector on a national and international scale . The courses are taught in English to offer an international dimension to this training. The result of a strategic collaboration between UIR and Mississippi State University (MSU), the automotive engineering training was designed jointly with MSU's internationally recognized Bagley College of Engineering. This partnership is extended to Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta and Lorraine. This training combines theory, cutting-edge technology and “soft skills” to train multidisciplinary engineers who will have to lead different projects with different transport players: automobile, railway, etc.
