"The Certificate Course on "E-Motive and Power Electronics" was of very high teaching quality and very well organized. Many thanks to the professors for the dedicated lectures. Even though we could not be on campus - the online format was as informative as it was inspiring! A highlight was the closing "Big Picture", which accelerated the transfer of the new knowledge into the Porsche company."
