Automotive engineering is a prioritized area of research at Chalmers. Through competence centres within catalysts, combustion, hybrids and safety linked to one of Chalmers’ Areas of Advance, Transport, Chalmers has gained a worldwide reputation. The Department of Applied Mechanics hosts three such centres: SAFER, Combustion Engine Research Centre (CERC) and Swedish Hybrid Vehicle Centre (SHC).
Safety research has achieved international acclaim, in particular with respect to activities in biomechanics related to whiplash injuries, and research on internal combustion engines has focused on lowering emissions by spray modelling and injection strategies. Chalmers hosts the Swedish Hybrid Centre, SHC, which is a cooperation initiative between Swedish universities and the automotive industry. Research focuses on batteries, powertrain control and electric motors.
All research groups at the Department of Applied Mechanics support the master's programme and graduate schools for PhD students, and constitute a natural continuation of all three tracks. Many of the courses in the curriculum may also be incorporated into the PhD programmes. The master’s programme therefore serves as a natural platform for PhD studies.

The program offers specific areas of specialization to graduates of architecture and other related disciplines. Aiming at not only the transfer but also the production of knowledge, it includes both theoretical and applied courses in the field of architecture. With full awareness of social necessities and needs, students are expected to participate in individual and collective research projects using advanced contemporary technological means. The program encourages the development of interdisciplinary and international research projects.
