Focus areas in research

Currently, around 70 professorships with 200 academic staff are conducting research primarily in the fields of Mobility & Road Safety, Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning and Sustainability & Renewable Energies. THI is represented in the HRK research map with the three main research areas "Vehicle Safety", and "Innovative Mobility" and "Renewable Energies".

 

 

Research Institutes

Research at THI is organised in research institutes - CARISSMA (C-IAD, C-ISAFE, C-ECOS), AImotion Bavaria, Institute for Innovative Mobility (IIMo), Institute for New Energy Systems (InES), Sustainability in Research and Transfer Center Neuburg (ForTraNN) and the Bavarian Foresight Institute (to be founded soon). In addition, the university works closely with the three AN-institutes AININ, Fraunhofer Anwendungszentrum and inas.

Promoting research and young scientists

THI is strongly committed to young academics. For years, doctoral projects in the fields of technology and economics have been carried out very successfully with partner universities in Germany and abroad. Together with the TU Munich, THI is the sponsoring university of BayWISS in the "Mobility and Transport" collaborative research centre. All doctoral students at THI (about 100 at this stage) are supervised by the university's own Graduate Center.
