The Institut für Kraftfahrzeuge (IKA)

IKA is engaged in teaching and industry-orientated research-projects on
vehicles - e.g. cars, commercial vehicles, busses and motorcycles - as well as neighbouring issues such as traffic and environmental conditions (noise, exhaust gas, etc.). IKA increasingly links research projects with development tasks that have to be financed by third-party funding. Therefore the IKA´s equipment allows in principle the kind of work done in the automotive and supplier industry. Public funding, industrial sponsoring as well as a great deal of personal effort on behalf of the institute staff helped to make this equipment accessible. Correct and punctual realisations of research and development tasks are thus achieved.
