How we’ll drive tomorrow

How we’ll drive tomorrow

More than 300 young researchers and developers are currently doing their doctorates at the Volkswagen Group. Part two of our PhD series takes you into the world of batteries.

Under the banner "Researching Towards Tomorrow", around 700 visitors came to Wolfsburg last week for information at the Volkswagen Group's 13th PhD day. This year, the focus was on electric mobility, digitization, lightweight construction and environmental and resource efficiency.

And on three of the PhD students themselves. This is because we will be presenting Patrick Arnold, Robert Wendland and Anja Bielefeld from the drive technology research department in a film series that runs until next week. In the film on top of this page, Robert Wendland takes you to Volkswagen in Braunschweig and shows you how he wants to improve the thermal design of battery systems.

How the Volkswagen AG PhD program works

PhD students have three years at Volkswagen to complete their dissertations. Meanwhile, they work closely with their universities and professors and, of course, with the respective department from which they are assisted by their doctoral supervisor. After completing their dissertation, they can be offered permanent employment at Volkswagen.
