Our partner institute, the Institute for Combustion Engines and Automotive Engineering (IVK) changed its name to Institute of Automotive Engineering (IFS) on April 1st, 2020

In these difficult times our partner institute informs about a long planned, positive change.

With the name change, the IFS wants to take into account the changes in automobile development and the changes through new mobility concepts.

The future is electrified, networked and automated and also at the IFS there are new focal points in research and teaching, the topics are changing. In numerous exciting projects with important tasks for the future, the IFS would like to keep its finger on the pulse of the times and make a contribution to mastering the corresponding tasks.

We, the FKFS, wish our partner institute a successful start with its new name.
