New challenges for automotive and engine technology

Automotive and engine technology is facing major challenges: new drive and vehicle concepts, automation, networking and digitization are on the agenda. The Institute of Automotive Engineering (IFS) at the University of Stuttgart is working intensively on these topics in teaching and research.

The interdisciplinary competences of the three chairs

With its Chairs of Vehicle Drives, Automotive Engineering and Automotive Mechatronics, the Institute currently employs about 80 people, supervises the Bachelor of Science and Master of Science courses in Vehicle and Engine Technology (FMT) as well as students of various other courses, including mechanical engineering, technology management and electromobility. With approximately 1200 registered students, the FMT courses are among the largest undergraduate courses at the University of Stuttgart. The IFS is thus at the forefront of training highly qualified junior staff for the automotive industry in Baden-Württemberg and throughout Germany.

On the page Research Projects you will find a list of all current projects of the institute.
