Automotive engineering is still one of the key technologies in Germany. Among other things, state-of-the-art manufacturing processes and innovative materials have always guaranteed a leading position in international automotive engineering. Industrial bonding technology is a good example of such a key technology. Companies benefit from the Fraunhofer IFAM's educational offer in the field of bonding technology, with its holistic further education concept, which provides for the »knowledge generators« as »knowledge mediators«.

Modern lightweight construction is no longer imaginable without the use of composite materials. Not only companies from the automotive industry profit from the expertise of Fraunhofer employees in a comprehensive range of courses on how to deal with this class of materials.

The current training courses offered by the Fraunhofer Institute for Non-Destructive Testing IZFP and the Automotive Quality Saar AQS innovation cluster deal with the subject of quality assurance throughout the entire product life cycle, from material to assembly in use. It is directed towards plant operators, machine operators as well as line and quality managers in the automotive supplier industry and is offered in modular form in collaboration with renowned partners in technical further training.
