Vehicle Technology

Vehicle technology is a field of mechanical engineering and, like general mechanical engineering, is based on the classical engineering disciplines, including thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, technical mechanics, materials science, electrical engineering and design theory.

The term vehicle technology is often associated with passenger vehicles, but this field deals specifically with all types of road vehicles, such as motorcycles, passenger cars, commercial vehicles, and work machines.

Areas of technical focus in the field of vehicle technology include:

  • Chassis technology
  • Power train technology
  • Battery technology
  • Exhaust gas technology
  • Air conditioning technology
  • Lightweight construction
  • Aerodynamics
  • Car body concept and design
  • Manufacturing technology
  • Ergonomics
  • Driver assistance systems
  • Navigation and motor vehicle-related telecommunications systems
  • Technical acoustic
