Electronic engineering shapes the mobility of the future. The Technical University Ingolstadt also realised this development early on and that is why it has been offering its students a new degree programme in “Electronic Engineering and Mobility” for the past 1 and a half years. This programme transfers know-how from all areas of electronic engineering and uses applied techniques to teach the necessary specialised knowledge in the areas of electronic machines, power electronics as well as energy storage. Electronic mobility is a specialisation that will become increasingly important in various pure and hybrid drives. But electrical energy is not only used in road vehicles, but also in railway technology, conveyor technology, machines, robots and autonomous vehicles up to medical technology to ensure efficient mobility.
As there’s a particular focus at BFFT on the development of energy storage systems and electrification, there was an excursion for about 25 students on the new “Electronic Engineering and Mobility” degree programme run by Dr Roland Meier at BFFT on February 3. Among other things the participants had a tour through the headquarters and gained deep insights into developmental projects focused on energy storage systems. Furthermore a joint lunch in the BFFT cafeteria was used to exchange notes and ideas on alternative drives as well as to discuss electronic mobility.
Current job opportunities in the areas of energy storage systems and electrification can be found on BFFT’s job portal.
