Homecoming to the KIT for the Powertrain TechDay

For the Powertrain TechDay, IPG Automotive goes back to the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT): Founded as a spin-off from a student project at the KIT, we are proud of our roots and the connection we still have with the institute. We are therefore very thankful that in 2023, we can host our first Powertrain TechDay on Campus Ost of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.

Let’s set the path to electric mobility together

On March 22, we will focus on a specific field of application: powertrain. You are working on powertrain development, specifically on the development of hybrid and electric vehicles? Then join us and let’s discuss what you need to do your job best when it comes to efficient testing of powertrains.
