  • MDH has introduced a new study administration system. This means that certain functions in the student portal are linked further to another student interface.

  • Mälardalen University (MDH) together with the Alfred Nobel Science Park and MITC AB has been granted over 16 million SEK for the TransMission project. The purpose of the three-year project is to overcome the challenges facing the automotive industry in the technology shift towards electric vehicles.

  • The human factor lies behind 90 percent of all traffic accidents. But if vehicles can learn to identify risk behaviours in pedestrians, cyclists and drivers, a large number of these accidents can be prevented. This is what researchers in the new project SimuSafe, a major international venture in which Mälardalen University (MDH) is taking part, believe, and which will take three and a half years to develop such a system.
