What we do - And why!
Mobility connects people. People shape mobility. With over 6,600 employees around the globe, we develop revolutionary and efficient drive systems, we cross-link vehicles with each other and their surroundings, and we strive to make our lives safer using intelligent systems. We need the right people at the right place to do so. People who turn visions into reality – who think outside the box and promote innovation. People who are ready to push the envelope. Are you ready?
We offer a thesis (Master) in the field of battery system development and circular economy to answer the following research question: "How does the new EU directive on battery recycling influence the total cost of ownership of EVs".
The introduction of the battery passport with the compulsory disclosure of information for the battery reuse, the gradual increase in recycling efficiency for key raw materials as well as the introduction of recycled active materials poses challenges which potentially increase the cost of development, production, logistics and disposal of automotive batteries on one hand, on the other hand opens the possibility of exploiting circular lifecycles.
The proposed thesis, shall investigate these topics with help of case studies, which are technically and economically reasonable. The focus here is on the combination of technical specifications and economic considerations.
The open position is particularly suitable for students of electrical and mechanical engineering, especially in combination with economics. Prior experience in the following areas is useful for successful completion of the master's thesis:
General design of electrical powertrains.
- Required soft skills:
- quick comprehension
- independent way of working
- working well in a team
- interest in publishing research papers
