Automotive engineering and transport management is a new programme created in 2019 to replace our previous programme in transport, offered by the University since 2007.  Poland has the fastest growing road freight transport sector in the EU. Freight movements by road between Poland and other member states represent nearly 93% of all road shipments within the EU. Road freight movements outside the EU by Poland-based operators amount to over 33% of all such shipments. Polish carriers are some of the most active in the EU.  There are more than 83,000 road transport companies in Poland, 96% of which are small firms with up to 9 employees. The most important skills required in such firms are those associated with proper selection of vehicles so that they can perform specific transport services. Employers and employees in the road transport sector need to have a good knowledge of vehicle reliability and performance. Hence the decision to make the new programme more suitable for the current markets in which transport companies operate by calling it  automotive engineering and transport management.  Following the latest trends in transport and automotive engineering, the curriculum was thoroughly revised by significantly increasing the number of practical courses, especially laboratories and projects, which will allow students to obtain specialist knowledge and skills valued by employers.

Overview of the undergraduate (first-cycle) programme

Students completing this programme will have knowledge of automotive engineering, analysis of transport systems, transport economics, transport law, and the organisation and management of transport and freight forwarding businesses and transport support services. The focus will be mainly on road transport, which accounts for more than 85% of all freight movements in Poland (in tonnes). Much attention will be given to the knowledge and skills in the areas of the design, operation, maintenance and diagnostics of motor vehicle systems, including internal combustion engines. According to the current trends, students will develop knowledge of automotive safety, intelligent transport solutions, traffic engineering, alternative power sources, electromobility and autonomous vehicles. They will be prepared to solve engineering problems in the area of logistics and freight forwarding; they will be ready to work in businesses specialising in transport, logistics and freight forwarding or automotive diagnostics, servicing and repair.

Overview of the postgraduate (second-cycle) programme

On completion of this programme, students will have an advanced knowledge and skills to creatively solve problems related to the organisation and management of transport, logistics and freight forwarding businesses and processes. They will know legal, procedural and technical requirements to start and run a small transport company. If employed in a large or medium-sized firm, they will be prepared to use technological advances, including modern computer and telecommunications systems, to effectively manage the company operations and the fleet of vehicles. They will also know how to use state-of-the-art equipment to perform automotive diagnostics, servicing and repair. They will be able to use mathematical methods and models to model and optimise problems associated with transport planning and automotive design, operation and maintenance. They will be able to combine knowledge of logistics with that of transport economics, business management and automotive maintenance to formulate and solve problems encountered while analysing the economic effectiveness of a logistics system.

After successfully completing some of the courses within the automotive maintenance and road transport management specialism, students may apply to be exempt from a nationally-recognised examination for the Certificate of Professional Competence in International Road Transport of Goods, issued under the EU regulations by the Road Transport Institute.  According to the EU law, this certificate is a prerequisite for a managerial position in  a passenger or freight transport company.

Overview of the undergraduate (first-cycle) programme

Throughout this programme, students will gain a strong theoretical and practical background in industrial design so that they will be able to undertake and complete various engineering tasks including design of consumer and industrial products and development of prototypes, taking into account not only engineering but also aesthetic and economic factors. They will develop knowledge and skills useful in a variety of work environments, ranging from design studios, to R&D departments of large and medium-sized manufacturing companies, to small- and micro-businesses operating in the design and manufacturing sectors. They will also be prepared to start and run their own businesses or work as freelancers. On completion of the programme, students will be able to efficiently use computer hardware and software for design, prototyping and manufacturing, for visual communication, especially graphics creation, processing and presentation, and finally, for organisation and management of design-related tasks.

Apart from university-based practical classes, students of this programme take part in field trips to develop their drawing and team building skills. The trips are usually to Sandomierz, with students staying at the Kielce University of Technology Humanities and Architecture Centre.

Final design projects developed by our students for their undergraduate qualification include designs of furniture, functional everyday objects, urban and street furniture, machine tools (drills, 3D printers) and motorcycles; there have also been concepts of automotive facelifts and projects in the areas of computer graphics and visual communications.

For the best designs developed by students either as part of the coursework or as final projects for the inżynier qualification (bachelor’s degree), the University seeks national and international protection at the Polish Patent Office under intellectual property law so that they are registered as industrial or utility models (32 designs by our students protected as industrial models so far).
