Designing the sustainable mobility solutions of the future

It is time to rethink the way we move around. It is up to you, the engineers of tomorrow, to find new sustainable and green mobility solutions. As part of this endeavour, this study programme delves into a specific part of new mobility solutions, Micromobility. It refers to all types of mobility from walking to vehicles smaller than the classical car. Think of bikes, scooters, or small electrified delivery vans. So, do you have a passion for contributing to advancements in electrified vehicles, energy storage systems, and the development of a circular economy with new mobility solutions? This future-oriented engineering programme will equip you with the knowledge and skills.  

The Master’s programme in New Mobility – Micromobility is an engineering programme where you will gain expertise in engineering new mobility solutions with lightweight constructions and fibre composites. This programme emphasises the future potential of fibre composite materials, known for their efficiency and recyclability. For many years, PFH has been passionately teaching and leading research in the field of lightweight structures and fibre-reinforced composite technology. 

As a graduate of the New Mobility programme, you will be in a position to understand mobility concepts and evaluate them to develop sustainable mobility solutions befitting a circular economy.

After graduation - your career begins

You are the one in control of your career. We support and encourage your development in any direction you choose to pursue. Careers in the field can range from highly technical roles to managerial positions. You can choose to concentrate on the practical applications of engineering knowledge or develop skills in engineering management and structural development.  

Jobs in New Mobility encompass the development of mobility solutions, along with strategic planning and decision-making. Below are some job descriptions to illustrate the range of career opportunities available to you: 

  • 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.
