The Department of Automotive Engineering as part of the Institute of Land and Marine Transportation Systems at the faculty of Transport and Mechanical Systems is covering research fields including vehicle conception, passive safety, pedestrian safety, vehicle crash compatibility, development process and computational methods, vehicle dynamics, energy consumption and emissions in road traffic. The section has a variety of modern CAD and CAE tools as well as test devices at its disposal. Within EU funded projects the Department of Automotive Engineering participated in different projects in the fields of compatibility (FIMCAR) and vehicle concepts (especially passive safety for new vehicle concepts, CLEVER) and child safety (CASPER) amongst others. The Department of Automotive Engineering has a permanent staff of 17 of which 10 are researchers
