VOLKSWAGEN Slovakia and the Košice University of Technology’s Faculty of Informatics and Electrotechnical Science on March 26 opened a laboratory of automotive electronics, including an ‘e-simulator’, the SITA newswire reported.

An Audi Q7 SUV has been donated to the teaching facility and will be used to give students an insight into elements of the electrical and electronic equipment used in modern cars. They will also become familiar with the construction of components, cables, and connectors which aren’t usually accessible in a completed car, Volkswagen Slovakia spokesperson Vladimír Machalík said, as reported by SITA.

“This facility is a big advantage for our students,” said Liberios Vokorokos, the dean of the faculty, as quoted by SITA. “Working with it they will acquire priceless experience of electronic and electrical systems in automobiles.”

Volkswagen Slovakia is constantly searching for students with a good-quality education, the company’s director Albrecht Reimold told SITA.
