Your Career Start in the Virtual Vehicle Development.

As an expert in the field of Automotive Simulation you will be well prepared for technological change in the automotive industry. Will we be driving electric and driverless cars in the future? What changes will this bring about to virtual vehicle development and, with it, to the world of experts of the future? If you can envisage a professional career in vehicle development and want to find out from key players of the automotive industry which competencies you need to possess, then you have come to the right place. We offer you practical insights into this field and a different kind of careers event to boot.

Nowadays, innovative vehicles are increasingly being developed digitally. Virtual simulation methods play a major role in the realization of new vehicle concepts. These encompass e.g. driving vehicle models into a wall in complex crash simulations on the computer. This is not only much cheaper; it also offers many other advantages over using a real prototype. Small wonder that the demand for qualified simulation and IT experts in the automotive industry is steadily increasing and new and future-oriented fields of activity arise. Helping to shape future mobility combined with the technical challenge, whilst simultaneously contributing to society, must be one of the most forward-looking areas of work.

Have we sparked your interest? Then the simpulse career night 2019 is the right format for you to get into touch with potential employers early on, in a focused and efficient way. If you are an engineer, computer or natural scientist you really should use this unique opportunity to get to know companies from the field of automotive simulation. The various companies will present themselves during this event, complemented by exiting keynote speeches. The accompanying exhibition provides you with a direct opportunity to find out more about the companies and to talk about issues and mutual expectations at a Career-Speed-Meeting. We also offer you the golden opportunity to take part in an application photo shoot free of cost.
