Let us tell you a story…

Envision yourself as one of the most influential engineers globally, flourishing in your dream company, holding a prestigious position, enjoying an excellent salary, bonuses, and residing in the city you adore. This is true freedom.

Allow us to share the stories of two engineers, whose identities remain confidential for privacy reasons. Both hailing from Detroit, USA, these engineers embarked on distinct trajectories.

The first, a plenum engineer specializing in vehicle dynamics analysis, secured a promotion to plenum in 2017 while working for a multinational corporation.

Contrastingly, the second engineer, initially a junior engineer in a local company in 2017, is now the Global Technical Director of one of the largest automobile companies, residing in Germany.

How did this transformation occur? 

The second engineer consistently sought networking events, was always an eye on opportunities, and was always looking for knowledge. This search for knowledge isn’t a past effort but an ongoing one.

On the other hand, the first engineer, after the promotion, became comfortable

What people say about us

“Really efficient seminar in terms of learning key points on vehicle dynamics. Claude has so much knowledge that this seminar could last a few more days. Thank you, Claude, for teaching us this course through your experience.”

JULES FIOCCA

Engineer, ESTACA

“I felt the seminar as a whole was a great experience and taught me both the basic concepts and some more advanced ones that unfortunately I didn’t learn in university. The information was of great quality and always taught at the right pace. Initially, I felt 10 hours a day for 4 days would be too much, but I never felt overwhelmed with information or got distracted. I always felt a big interest in everything that was being taught because Claude would always relate to some application of it in the real world and that was very important.”

PEDRO MATOS

Race Engineer Consultant

“Seminar tells something that is already written in books, but viewed from another point of view. It’s very interesting to discover how to use formulas and methods written in books in a good way. Examples are very useful to understand the problem and help to remember things. The teacher is very good at keeping attention and the time passes very fast!”
