Seminar task Industrial Development of Commercial Vehicles

The seminar assignment "Industrial Commercial Vehicle Development" gives you valuable practical experience. At the first kick-off meeting, we form small groups and present several current tasks from the Daimler Trucks development department. You will then select a task and work on it together in your group during the semester. We and the Daimler development engineers will support you throughout the entire semester and are of course available for questions and discussions.

At the end of the semester there will be our excursion to Wörth, where you will get to know the Daimler Trucks plant and present your results directly to the development department.

We were able to win Prof. Dr.-Ing. Uwe Baake as an external lecturer. In addition to his technical expertise, he will also give you an insight into the everyday life of OEMs and you will have the opportunity to make contacts for possible internships or theses.

The course takes place in cooperation with Daimler Trucks.

Learning Outcomes

During the course, students will gain an insight into the current work of a development engineer in the commercial vehicle industry, using Daimler Trucks as an example. Contents from all areas of vehicle development are addressed and real development tasks from the everyday life of an OEM are worked on.
