DHBW Engineering Stuttgart e. V.

Every year since 2008, the Formula Student Team of the Duale Hochschule Baden-Württemberg (DHBW) Stuttgart has designed and manufactured a formula racing car. Motorsport enthusiast students of Faculties, technology and social services are all involved. Also in the current season track almost 100 students that have the common goal to build an electric-powered racing car over a period of 12 months. As of yet, the students have launched so successfully in the Formula Student competitions that the team is currently in 10th position in the world rankings, with a total of 122 teams.

What is Formula Student?

Formula Student is an international design competition, attended by university teams from around the world. The task is to draw up a formula racing car for the competition category Combustion (FSC) or Electric (FSE). Since 2012, the team of Stuttgart DHBW has occurred, in line with the energy transition, with an electrically operated racing car, that answers to the name “eSleek”. Meanwhile the eSleek15 was launched.

What is ITW Schindler’s contribution?

Showcase “Electro mobility connects”

Within this extensive project, the ITW Schindler GmbH is involved in the “elaboration of a qualification process due to increased requirements under electro mobility for new to be qualified professionals”.

Objectives: To meet the increasing demands around electric mobility, a qualification process for new professionals to be qualified is being developed and implemented. Training opportunities for electric vehicles and high-voltage technology are being created to meet future training requirements. At the center of attention are trainees in mechatronics and in the commercial sector.

The project is one of 40 projects in the showcase ELECTRO MOBILITY CONNECTS from Bavaria/Saxony and is funded with 197,841 Euros by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology as part of the showcase initiative of the German Federal Government.
