Prof. Dr. Peter Neugebauer

Steinbeis mourns the death of Prof. Dr. Peter Neugebauer, who passed away in April at the age of 55 following a short but serious illness. As well as his role at Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences, Peter Neugebauer was extremely successful at the Steinbeis Transfer Centers for Automotive Testing and Automotive Engineering.

Peter Neugebauer was appointed by Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences in March 2010, where he was responsible for the professorial chair for vehicle electronics at the faculty of mechanical engineering and mechatronics. His commitment and success in research on modern travel solutions and vehicle technology were reflected in the 2012 founding and subsequent development of the Research Institute of Energy Efficient Mobility (IEEM) at Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences. Neugebauer was both the director and spokesperson for the institute since its foundation. His work for the Steinbeis Transfer Centers for Automotive Testing and Automotive Engineering, which were founded in 2010 and 2015 respectively, covered a variety of topics related to vehicle diagnostics, electronics development and testing, and embedded software, and many of his research findings found their way into business.

Steinbeis loses an enthusiastic and much-valued colleague in Peter Neugebauer, who was always highly committed to his work and focused on the application of scientific insight. Peter Neugebauer’s expertise was most recently shared with us in the 1/2020 edition of Steinbeis TRANSFER Magazine, for which he wrote the editorial.

We will cherish his personal accomplishments and values. Our deepest condolences go to his family.
