FISITA supports the professional development of engineers, through its membership link with automotive engineering societies and corporate organisations.
Some of the latest developments include the creation of our Academic Advisory Board (AAB) - specifically formed to support and develop strategic relations between the automotive industry and academia on an international basis. Five leading universities around the world have entered into a long term collaboration with FISITA and its members in order to strengthen the automotive engineering link with academia. Academics from universities in the UK, Germany, China, Australia and the U.S. will regularly engage with FISITA and its members to collaborate and share their expertise and develop mutually beneficial development plans.
FISITA is also establishing an exclusive Industry Committee that will comprise of Corporate Members. Now in its twentieth year, FISITA Corporate Members are a select group of industry leaders from the world’s top automakers, suppliers and technology providers. The work of the Industry Committee will drive collaboration among FISITA’s Corporate Members and support the global automotive industry in its transition to the mobility sector.
