Automotive companies worldwide are striving to develop adaptable new  technologies and components to further our mobility.  Environmentally-friendly mobile technologies, like those integrating  electric and hybrid vehicles, are increasingly relying on embedded  electronic systems to maximize their utility while reducing their carbon  footprint. The customer demand for safer and economical products is  pushing the industry to innovate new solutions and rethink approaches to  design and development.

These new future-forward technologies, such as advanced driver  assistance, rely heavily on implementing always-on, real-time, wireless  device communications. Technological components, such as  microcontrollers, sensors, and communication busses, are widely  available at a low cost and, once customized to meet the vehicle’s  specifications, will allow for new possibilities in utility and  performance by making use of all the (big) data captured in the vehicle.  New topological concepts, like client-server communication, rely on  these new model-based and process-oriented system design methods.

The Master´s Program in Mobility Systems Engineering and Management  assists new players as well as traditional key players with a  system-oriented approach to jumpstart in an emerging mobility future.

Focus Points of Mobility Systems Engineering and Management

  • Automotive Systems in times of Internet of Things (IoT) and  Industry 4.0: Integration of Cyber Physical Systems & Big Data  Handling
  • Automotive Standards & Applications (autonomous driving, alternative drivetrains and more)
  • Data Communication Topologies and Technologies (e.g. CAN, Flexray or wireless/car2x, Ethernet)
  • Worldwide Release & Configuration Management
  • Testing 2.0 (beyond classical HiL)
  • Security & Safety (according to ISO26262, ASIL)
  • Process Maturity Level Assessments (CMMI, SPICE)

"The Master Program Mobility Systems Engineering and Management  offers a unique combination of courses in emerging technologies &  systems engineering. Processes, methods and tools for the challenges of  future mobility in e-drive, autonomous driving,  communication-over-the-air, and worldwide release & configuration  management are introduced on the engineering as well as on the  management side."

Program Director Prof. Dr.-Ing. Eric Sax

The  Master's program Mobility Systems Engineering and Management is  splitted in 5 Engineering and 5 Management Modules of 2 weeks, each over  a period of 15 months. The modules are followed by a Master Thesis  written in the company (9 months) and often used as a innovation project  for the company. The overall duration is approx. 20 months.
