The research of electric drives will connect the Faculty of Electrical Engineering with the German concern ZF

University of West Bohemia (UWB) will participate in joint research projects with the ZF concern, one of the world leaders in the field of technology and innovations in the automotive industry. Representatives of both institutions today signed a cooperation agreement at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, UWB, whose experts and students will be important for cooperation with the Faculty of Medicine.

The Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the University of West Bohemia and ZF have been in close contact for a long time. The Strategic Cooperation Agreement concluded today concerns research into new technologies for electric propulsion and vehicle power electronic systems and is concluded for five years. The faculty will also support education in this area to expand the theoretical knowledge of the students using practical examples.

Dean of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering prof. Zdeněk Peroutka says: “Today's signing of a strategic partnership agreement between UWB and ZF brings together the know-how of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, which belongs to the largest European research groups in power electronics and drives, with the production and technological background of the ZF group. innovative leaders in the automotive industry. This combination is crucial for the emergence of new technologies and products in the field of electrified vehicle drives. The signed contract also brings benefits for our students. They will enable them to broaden their theoretical knowledge with practical experience and actively participate in research projects carried out by joint teams of UWB and ZF.”

Director of ZF Engineering Plzeň Mathias Eickhoff adds: “Electromobility is an important pillar of our Next Generation Mobility Strategy. We look forward to working with the University of West Bohemia and to benefit from the extensive research knowledge and experience of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering. In addition to gaining new insights, its students and graduates can also find out what career opportunities can be found with a global automotive supplier.”
