Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has formed a partnership with CRF (the group’s research centre) to fund a master in autonomous and connected car technology. The objective of the second level university master in Autonomous Driving and Enabling Technologies (ADBoT) is to train a new generation of automotive industry experts.

The one-year course starts on May 20th 2019. It will be taught in English and will take place at the University of Trento in Italy. Registrations for the course are open until 19 April.

FCA says the master will ‘provide participants with the elements they need to design and develop smart systems for connected and autonomous vehicles, the engineering challenge now beginning to be faced by the global car market’.

In a press release it says: ‘FCA and the CRF have decided to support this master’s degree programme as it provides an important opportunity to acquire precise skills in a field that will be increasingly strategic for the car. It is essential for engineers who are beginning to work in the automotive sector today to complement their conventional mechanical training with new knowledge: from artificial intelligence to machine learning, from cybersecurity to sensor fusion’.
