Lectures are hold about the basics of accident mechanics, biomechanics, integrated safety and simulation techniques.In line with the laboratory tutorials “Component testing” and “Crash tests”, various experiments are executed and analysed by the students autonomous. In addition, there is the possibility to collaborate in line with projects theses in current research projects and recess the existing knowledge or rather realize new ideas.
