Profiling: Commercial vehicle technology

Commercial vehicles have long been a natural part of our everyday lives and we encounter them on the roads in a wide variety of forms, for example as lorries or buses. Similar to construction machinery, they also hold a certain fascination for many due to their size alone. The demands placed on commercial vehicles are extremely complex: maximum efficiency, sustainability, environmental compatibility, but also comfort, driving safety and durability are just some of them.

HAW Landshut is one of the few universities in Germany to offer you the opportunity to qualify in this interesting field of vehicle technology in the form of the updated "Commercial Vehicles" specialisation. Due to the long-standing tradition of this specialisation, HAW Landshut is very well networked with regional and national industry.

The main areas of commercial vehicles are covered in detail in this specialisation: Design, driving dynamics and drive technology. You will acquire specific knowledge of combustion engines as well as knowledge of alternative drive technologies. This will give you the best qualifications for a career in the commercial vehicle sector. This includes not only manufacturers and suppliers, but also large private or public fleet operators or testing organisations as important potential employers.
