4th AKG Workshop „Formula-Student 2015“

On 5th December the AKG group organized a workshop for 18 teams of “Formula Student 2015” (Formula Student is Europe's most established educational motorsport competition, run by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.) from different universities and colleges about the topic “heat transfer”.

Coolers are an important part of the different racing cars, which are designed and built by the teams themselves in order to win the race.
27 students from 18 different universities and colleges joined us for the workshop in Hofgeismar. Some of the students accepted a long journey from all over Germany like Hamburg and Munich whereas some of them came from the area, for example a team of the University of Kassel.
First the workshop started with a short presentation of the AKG group and then the actual trainings, dealing with the special topic: “cooler design” followed. After a tour around the production the students had time to exchange of experience from the last racing season to get a clue for the upcoming season.
After a concluding discussion, the workshop slowly got to its end. The last point on the agenda was to visit the AKG’s Research and Development Department. 

Good luck for the upcoming season for all teams!
