Competencies / intended learning achievements

1. Lecture:

Knowledge of the essential boundary conditions for automotive product projects, strategic thinking, processing of complex and interdisciplinary issues in vehicle and powertrain development, dealing with uncertain boundary conditions.

The students get to know fundamental aspects of the early phase of product projects in the automotive industry, they are able to work out a structured approach and to cooperate in a team from various disciplines to derive a target.

2. Plant visit:

Demonstrating the effects/influences of constructional and conceptual product decisions for large-scale production, independent assessment of complex correlations and the necessary considerations of production-relevant boundary conditions for product design.
