At the Technical University of Ingolstadt in Germany, powertrain-development engineers from Audi are expanding their knowledge in the field of electric mobility. Their goal is to increase their strategic and technical expertise as the automaker further strengthens its innovative power by gaining additional stimulus from the world of science. The first participants from the Powertrain Development department will complete their further training in January 2017. ‘We are working hard to accelerate the electrification of the Audi fleet,’ said Oliver Hoffmann, head of powertrain development at Audi AG. ‘That’s why we need experienced employees with the best qualifications to support this transformation.’ Assuming that the project runs successfully, similar programs for employees from the entire company will follow.
