Coordination FSI is a One-Stop Service Centre for FSI partners, FSI employees and FSI students, supporting communication between FSI partners, MAGNA, and Graz University of Technology as well as between the three FSI institutes. Other main tasks are the implementation of the agreed FSI processes and FSI goals.
The FSI was founded in 2003 as a public-private-partnership between Graz University of Technology and Magna. It brings together science, education and business in a unique, new way of cooperation which seeks to achieve international excellence in teaching and research in the field of vehicle technology.
The FSI is an independent academic institution integrated into the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Economic Sciences at Graz University of Technology. Its three institutes - Institute of Automotive Engineering (FTG), Institute of Tools and Forming (T&F), and Institute of Production Science and Management (PSM) - pursue their own special research and teaching interests.
