Software Campus welcomes Volkswagen as new partner – together on the path of digital transformation

The Software Campus partner network is growing: with the current application phase, Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft is joining the program and accepting program participants for the first time in the upcoming batch. Under the motto “Shaping mobility – for generations to come”, the group is pushing ahead with electric mobility, digital networking and autonomous driving at full speed.

“The cooperation between Volkswagen Group IT and the Software Campus offers many opportunities for talents, but also for us as an employer,” says Beate Hofer, CIO of Volkswagen AG. “The talents develop with us in a very practical way, both personally and professionally. Their new perspectives and their spirit of research take us further on our way to becoming a software-driven mobility company – a promising combination.”

Research topics from smart production to AI

Program participants conduct research as part of the Software Campus together with the Data Lab Munich and the Smart Production Lab in Wolfsburg as part of the Software Innovation Center. In particular, Volkswagen is looking for candidates interested in the following topics:

  • Data privacy by design for connected cars
  • Deep learning methods for vehicle aerodynamic properties prediction
  • Automated Control of Dynamic Production Systems in Industrial Applications

Detailed information can be found on the application platform.

New training: Volkswagen focuses on diversity

Volkswagen is bringing a new perspective to the training offered by the Software Campus and is providing the training “Diversity – successfully leading diverse teams and fostering potential”. The aim is to show participants the potential and challenges of diverse teams in terms of gender, internationality and life phases. In addition, participants learn to reflect on unconscious biases and how Nudge Management can support behavioural changes.
