What is it?
Our society is inconceivable without mobility – without it we would not be able to get to our workplaces, schools, shops, doctors, or meet friends, go to the cinema or a beer garden. Cars, buses, trains, roads, railways and airports are the building blocks of a highly complex transport system. To ensure that this system can function economically, reliably and in an environment-friendly way and that all its components interlock and work together, companies, public authorities and civil society must handle a wide range of management tasks.
Graduates of the Mobility Management degree program are responsible for these tasks. They analyze our traffic problems both from a technical planning perspective and from a socio-scientific perspective, develop new, innovative solutions based on a user perspective and implement the solutions in a sustainable way. Mobility management consists of three pillars, which are of equal importance in the degree program:
- Traffic and mobility engineering: The analysis of planning procedures, designing infrastructures or the conceptual design of transport networks are tasks that require an engineering approach.
- Subjective mobility behaviour: Transport and mobility is organized by people for people. Individual mobility behaviour is the basis of transport demand. Mobility behaviour is influenced by a variety of factors. Whether these can be attributed to the situation, the available transport services or the individual in question, they can be empirically measured and statistically analyzed. Such analyses are used to design and develop means of transport and are thus an important component of the transport system of the future.
- Institutions: Our transport system is managed and developed by various parties. This often requires highly dynamic and apparently unpredictable economic, legal and political processes. In this context, management means understanding the dynamics of social systems and intelligently influencing them.
What can I do with it?
Mobility is a topic that affects everyone in their own immediate environment. Graduates of the Mobility Management degree program therefore have access to a wide range of very diverse occupational fields. They work, for example, as traffic planners in public authorities or planning offices, as designers of mobility concepts in companies or as consultants in the development of innovative mobility services.
