Mobility Systems

Post-fossil, networked, and (partially) autonomous: New products and services as well as steadily changing user behaviour are guiding us into a new age of mobility.

This university course directs a focus toward the various forms of individual mobility, public transport systems, and mobility services in passenger and freight transport.

You will gain fundamental knowledge about the use of different technologies in sustainable mobility solutions, the optimisation of existing products and services, and the creation of new products and services. This also includes recording and processing the customers’ requirements, as well as taking their mobility behaviour into account when developing new business models.

Teaching and learning methods

This course takes place in 3 phases:

Online phase: In the online phase, you will acquire fundamental knowledge through a process of self-study. This is done by referencing a combination of articles, literature on the topic, learning videos and taking advantage of other small learning offers. You can independently choose when and where you study. In order to ask questions and exchange information with lecturers and other course participants, you can freely access the TU Graz learning platform "TeachCenter".  
Before the online phase begins, a synchronous online session (e.g. by using Webex) will be held with the lecturer to provide an easy introduction to the module content. Every week, a synchronous online session with the lecturer is held, which enables you to reflect on the content and to ask any questions you may still have through a direct exchange.

Attendance phase: Based on what you learned in the online phase, you will deepen your knowledge in course units and receive personal support from experts on site. You have the opportunity to discuss, reflect upon, further expand, and apply the knowledge you have learned in the context of case study examples. Students who cannot be on site for professional reasons can participate in the courses via the online conference system (e.g. by using Webex). 

Transfer phase: This phase takes place individually or in a team. Here, you will use the knowledge you have acquired to work on questions and problems from your company context. In this phase, you also receive support from experts.
