New Mobility - Micromobility

A career 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.
