Alexander Rupp awarded 1st prize for Master's Thesis dealing with electromobility


Alexander Rupp received the first prize of the DRIVE-E study award for his excellent contribution to future electromobility in his Master's Thesis. He developed a mathematical model and a computer-based simulation environment for lithium-ion all-solid-state batteries to examine and predict their electrochemical and mechanical behavior during operation in electric vehicles. The thesis was conducted in the research and development department of the BMW Group and supervised by the Institute for Computational Mechanics (Prof. Wall) at the Technical University of Munich (TUM).

The DRIVE-E study prize was initiated in 2009 by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the Fraunhofer Society. The first prize for submitted Master's Theses is endowed with 6000 Euro.
