Automotive companies worldwide are striving to develop adaptable new technologies and components to further our mobility.

Environmentally-friendly mobile technologies, like those integrating electric and hybrid vehicles, are increasingly relying on embedded electronic systems to maximize their utility while reducing their carbon footprint. The customer demand for safer and economical products is pushing the industry to innovate new solutions and rethink approaches to design and development.

These new future-forward technologies, such as advanced driver assistance, rely heavily on implementing always-on, real-time, wireless device communications. 

Technological components, such as microcontrollers, sensors, and communication busses, are widely available at a low cost and, once customized to meet the vehicle’s specifications, will allow for new possibilities in utility and performance by making use of all the (big) data captured in the vehicle. New topological concepts, like client-server communication, rely on these new model-based and process-oriented system design methods.

Career Perspectives after Graduation from the Program in Mobility Systems Engineering and Management at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT)  

The challenges of todays mobile world require globally thinking visionaries, engineers and managers who are able to combine competences in mechanical and electrical engineering with excellent know-how in economics, business management and law.


The KIT is system-accredited by AAQ. All HECTOR School master programs are accredited by the internal quality assurance system of the KIT.
