Another Board Member of Audi, Dr. Werner Widuckel stated that this will not only create secure jobs for young people, but this is also going to improve the research progress concerning electronics, battery technology and power electronics.
“We are currently hiring an additional 100 engineers for the ePerformance development project.” That will boost the number of newly hired specialists at Audi this year to 400. “We are thus investing in future technologies and once again confirming our commitment to ‘Vorsprung durch Technik’ (Advancement through Technology)," underscored Stadler.
Furthermore, the German carmaker also launched the "Audi Contest Formula Student electric” to coincide with the 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show, therefore rewarding the most compelling concepts with an attractive sponsorship package.
Moreover, the company is offering students and young engineers the opportunity to experience ePerformance up close and personal at the aforementioned event.
“We are giving young people secure jobs, personal development opportunities and interesting prospects for the future. At the same time, we are making targeted and sustainable investments in specialists for electronics, battery technology and power electronics,” says Audi Board Member for HR Dr. Werner Widuckel.
“We want to shatter boundaries, which is why we are seeking developers with the courage and passion to make the impossible possible. We need engineers with both an inventive spirit and good workmanship skills, he added.”
