Audi Chief Technical Officer Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg on sustainability, mobility and a destiny during Stanford UniversityAs partial of a automaker’s joining to building new tolerable technologies and compelling creation in engineering, Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, Board Member for Technical Development of AUDI AG and conduct of cross-brand Research Development during Volkswagen AG, delivered a keynote residence during a Center for Automotive Research during Stanford (CARS). In his address, Prof. Dr. Hackenberg discussed strategies and solutions for moulding a “Sustainable Mobility of a Future” that was also a pretension of his speech.

Both Volkswagen and Audi are committed to sustainability opposite all product segments and via a supply chain. The companies offer a extensive set of expostulate technologies including optimized high-tech explosion engines, entirely electric vehicles, hybrids, plug-in variety and e-gas powered cars. Alternative drivetrains from Volkswagen and Audi will be tailor-made to accommodate patron expectations in terms of opening and pushing pleasure, benchmarking potency and cost-effectiveness. More than 150 Stanford students, imagination and media who attended a keynote, had a possibility to learn some-more about several tolerable mobility exhibits on display. Central to a showcase was a sporty and fit Audi A3 e-tron plug-in hybrid and a VW XL 1, a initial one-liter automobile prepared for array production.

Stanford University, located in a heart of California’s Silicon Valley, is one of a heading training and investigate universities of a world. It continues to be a resplendent instance for universities all around a creation by a artistic alloy of systematic investigate and entrepreneurial spirit. Volkswagen AG and Stanford University concur on a array of projects associated to automotive technologies.

Prof. Dr. Hackenberg is an internationally famous attention maestro with proven imagination in innovative automobile manufacturing. He is a artistic conduct of a modular pattern plan for fit automotive engineering, a judgment that has been implemented via a brands of Volkswagen Group with a idea of effectively transferring groundbreaking technical creation into tangible array production.

Prof. Dr. Hackenberg has been a dedicated techer to engineering students around a universe for many years and is privately committed to igniting engineering students’ passion for record by pity his imagination from 3 decades in investigate and growth with AUDI AG and Volkswagen AG. Since 2007, Prof. Dr. Hackenberg has lectured as a visiting highbrow during Tongji University in Shanghai, China. Since 2000, Tongji and Volkswagen AG have worked together to rise tighten attribute dedicated to engineering investigate and education. In addition, Prof. Dr. Hackenberg binds a training rendezvous during Tsinghua University in Bejing, China.

Prof. Dr. Hackenberg is an alumnus of Rheinisch-Westfaelische Technische Hochschule Aachen/Germany, one of a heading technical universities in Europe, where he complicated automatic engineering.

As a heading reward automobile manufacturer and sought-after employer with 12 prolongation sites in 10 countries, Audi has always been committed to building and progressing tolerable family with universities worldwide. At present, there are roughly 30 general universities concerned in projects that support a company’s tellurian investigate and growth network. Audi continues to build relations with students and scientists to learn about destiny mobility trends and patron expectations.
