Are you interested in sustainable and modern mobility options?

For you, deciding between car, bus or train is ancient history? Are you interested in sustainable ways of getting around? The Master's study programme New Mobility - Micromobility provides a study programme in a growing and future-oriented subject area.

The Master's programme is aimed at engineers from a wide range of disciplines as well as designers who are enthusiastic about materials, locomotion and lightweight construction. The study programme offers the best professional conditions thanks to the special expertise in lightweight construction and fibre composites, which has been part of PFH in research and teaching for years. In addition, you will apply the knowledge you have acquired during your studies to practical, "real-life" projects.

As a graduate of the New Mobility degree programme, you will be involved in the development of mobility solutions and will be able to use your knowledge to understand mobility concepts and evaluate them.

Study content

The Master's programme lasts four semesters, in which you deepen your knowledge in digitalization, innovation and sustainability as well as ethical and legal issues in an international and intercultural context. You will gain practical knowledge through numerous projects and case studies in each semester. In preparation for the job market, you will not only acquire the needed theoretical knowledge in the field of modern drive concepts. You will also acquire essential skills to help you apply this knowledge to practice and learn how to use relevant tools. In addition, you will be able to oversee projects with different frameworks and work with others to develop a successful product. A scientific-theoretical orientation of the master's programme is shown in the examination of current research statuses in the lectures and in the preparation of scientific papers.

After graduation - your career begins

With the focus on New Mobility, graduates are able to develop leadership skills at a higher management level. They will be involved in the development of mobility solutions as well as planning and strategically oriented decision-making.

  • Production Management

    As a project manager in the New Mobility and Modern Drive Concepts department, you will be responsible for the technical management of development projects. Your tasks will therefore include independent control within the specified time and budget framework, leadership and coordination of interdisciplinary project teams, participation in project and resource planning, identification of deviations from goals and conflicts as well as the development of appropriate solutions.

  • Test Engineer

    With your Master's degree in New Mobility and Modern Drive Concepts, as a test engineer, you will take on the planning, coordination and implementation of automated and manual component tests, the implementation of system tests, error simulations and analysis on test vehicles including approval recommendations, the coordination with the responsible developers and coordination of all entities involved in the test process as well as ensuring the function and maintenance of the test benches. In addition, they document the results, report and evaluate malfunctions and analyse the errors.


  • Strategic Planning

    Strategic planning responsibilities fundamentally involve shaping the company's basic business strategy, developing strategic plans and evaluating company performance, and conducting research and data analysis to help make business decisions. With a master's degree in digitalization and automation, you can specialise in the areas of manufacturing. You plan machines, materials, personnel and deadlines in such a way that all orders can be processed smoothly.
