Three young talents from TU Braunschweig want to show in the EY Creator Lab how they understand the topic of “mobility” and want to solve it for the future.
Following the team from the Ostfalia University for Applied Sciences, three more students from the University of Braunschweig – Institute of Technology (TU Braunschweig) are now facing the challenge. In an all day workshop the students will develop concepts for the future of mobility. Finally they will present their ideas on the alternative stage in front of participants and speakers from the Automotive Summit 2018, who will be invited to ask questions. A public vote will decide the best concept.
Introducing the team from the University of Braunschweig:
The 24-year-old Torben Hegerhorst is currently writing his graduate thesis on the subject of automated driving, as part of his master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Braunschweig. After his graduation from high school, he completed a dual study program with Volkswagen AG in Wolfsburg, where he gained his first practical experience in various areas of the business. In the subsequent master’s degree he devoted himself to the topic of automated driving. He has been able to gain a deep insight into this field through a sponsorship from Carmeq GmbH, as well as his work at the Institute of Automotive Engineering, where he developed an environmental model for automated driving.
The 24-year-old Wilhelm Südekum is nearing completion of his master’s degree in the field of “Industrial Mechanical Engineering with specialization in Automotive Technology” at the University of Braunschweig. During his bachelor’s study in Mechanical Engineering at Hamburg University of Technology, he gained experience abroad through an internship in Poznań (PL) and a semester in Prague (CZ). In addition, he supported the QA department at Daimler AG’s Hamburg plant for six months. He is also currently obtaining his first insights into research in automated driving through his work on the Dynamic Vehicle Simulator of the Institute of Automotive Engineering.
22-year-old Sören Walther will begin his master’s study in the winter semester 2018/2019, in the specialization “Automotive Engineering” at Braunschweig Technical University. After completing his technical baccalaureate in Mechanical Engineering he began studying the subject at Braunschweig. His first experiences abroad were gained during high school on a 2 week foreign exchange trip to Japan in 2014. He completed an internship accompanying his study, in the company of “Fischer Mess- und Regeltechnik” in Bad Salzuflen. Participating in events such as “AIRSTUDENT 2018” gave him further insights into engineering activities and enabled him to make contacts with students across Germany.
