Organization profile

Transportation is a fundamental activity within society, therefore it is of paramount importance to establish optimal transportation systems for citizens.

Current studies and trends focus on increasing the performance of vehicles, designing them with less weight, conceiving "ultra-light vehicles". In this same sense, intelligent controls are also incorporated that are capable of materializing self-driving and automated parking site searches, all included in a race to reduce the environmental footprint with the lowest possible cost.

With the aim of promoting research in the area of ​​transport engineering and based on the considerations raised, the Transport Engineering Research Group "GIIT" has been created. Generating a positive impact on society, the group proposes conducting research that develops and generates innovative knowledge in Transportation Engineering, with a particular focus on the engineering, industry and construction areas of the Automotive Mechanical Engineering Career.
