Since 1996 Porsche Engineering has been cooperating with the mechanical engineering department at the Czech Technical University (CTU) in Prague.
In 2001 the successful collaboration between industry and the scientific institution led to the founding of Porsche Engineering Services, s.r.o. as a subsidiary of Porsche Engineering Group GmbH.
Since 2011 Porsche Engineering Services s.r.o. started a successful collaboration with the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Czech Technical University and in 2016 also with the Czech Institute for Informatics, Robotics and Cybernetics (CIIRC). Our cooperation includes supervision of master and doctoral theses, lecturing of Porsche Engineering experts at the university and collaboration on R&D projects in the fields of Big Data Processing, Autonomous Driving and Advanced Control Algorithms.
An important element of the growth strategy of Porsche Engineering has always been the cooperation with technical universities, from both an engineering and talent perspective. In 1996, Porsche began its engineering presence in the Czech Republic with a cooperation with the Faculty of mechanical engineering of the Czech Technical University. The proximity to several technical universities at home and abroad was also a reason to build a branch office directly in Ostrava.
Since 2018 we have started a collaboration with the VSB - Technical University of Ostrava. Our cooperation is focused on supervision of master and doctoral theses, lecturing of Porsche Engineering experts at the university and collaboration on R&D projects.
