Automotive Mechatronics Training Programme - an Inclusive Education Series for Car Manufacturer and Supplier Industry

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference paperpeer-review


Increasing integration of electrics/electronics into modern products has led to a significant change in development processes and value creation of formerly mechanically oriented industries. With rising share of information technology in vehicles both product functionalities and customer benefit increase, which requires fundamental changes in the development and manufacturing processes. Due to the fact, that modern cars include a significant and still increasing share of mechatronics systems involving mechanical, electrics/electronics and software components, a smart and effective integration of these historically often separated disciplines plays an important role throughout the entire product lifecycle. To enable this integration, development processes as well as applied tools and methods are changing, which requires comprehensive skills of the involved human resources including management, engineers and a range of other concerned parties. The present publication discusses the progress of technology change in the automotive industry and the associated requirements on the applied development processes. Based on these, a comprehensive automotive mechatronics training programme is introduced, which addresses the needs of knowledge enhancement by know-how transfer between the different involved engineering disciplines.
