In this module, you will be given a systematic overview of the technological transformation in the mobility sector. This includes basic information about vehicle technology (e.g. mechatronic systems, electrification, automation) as well as influencing factors and boundary conditions related to the transformation to sustainable passenger and freight transport. The effects of these factors on mobility management are also discussed.
This module emphasizes digitalization in automotive engineering and the development of knowledge and skills that enable strategic developments to be made. For this purpose, we cover mechatronic systems in vehicles, automotive control unit architectures and data networks, sensor systems and electrical actuators in detail, but also discuss certain complex automotive systems, such as those used in drive technology or automated driving. In addition, we look at the effects of digitalization on the design of development projects and their management.
Building on knowledge acquired in the two previous modules, this module enables you to gain highly specific knowledge of mobility systems. In addition to individual mobility forms, public transport systems and mobility services in passenger and freight transport are covered. In addition, the corresponding technological innovations are discussed, both in terms of vehicle technologies and in the areas of infrastructure and mobility management. This includes the use of alternative drive systems, automated and autonomous vehicles as well as the development of new business models, multimodal and flexible mobility systems and intelligent traffic management. Customer requirements, mobility behaviour and mobility demands play essential roles here.

The transformation that is taking place in passenger and freight transport is being driven by the quest for sustainable mobility and increasing automation. Both innovation drivers are closely connected to digitalization – this presents not only challenges but also many opportunities, introducing new possibilities for the development, deployment and management of technologies for vehicles and infrastructure.
