20.832 kilometers a track leads through green Eifel forests, the curves not visible, the crests treacherous. Sections such as the Adenauer Forst or the Fuchsröhre give it a character and demand the highest standards from driver and vehicle. Not without reason the "Nordschleife" was also called the "green hell". It was built in 1925 and still has great significance for the region - and for our university. This is because we are a founding member of the Nürburgring Academy, which consists of six universities from all over Germany and the industrial pool located at the Nürburgring. The Nürburgring Academy supports our students in their final and project work by providing them with premises and resources at the Nürburgring. In addition, the academy establishes contacts to companies and racing teams around the Nürburgring.
Likewise, a one-week excursion to the Nürburgring takes place at the end of the lecture "Motorsport Engineering". During this excursion, the academy will provide rooms with an exclusive view of the race track, where students from the universities of Trier and Stralsund will hear lectures from real experts in the field of motor sports. Here, concentrated experience is conveyed - only interrupted by visits to the workshops and development departments of local companies and racing teams.
And there is a lot of that at the Ring, because - what hardly anyone knows: Almost all car manufacturers in the world develop their prototypes on the Ring! Because there is no other track in the world where vehicles can be tested for so many safety-relevant driving dynamics characteristics during a lap.
So if you want to become part of the Nürburgring myth, you've come to the right place!
