Mobility and Traffic (Bachelor)

The entire transport sector is changing. Economy, customers, environment and politics demand sustainable, safe and reliable system solutions in the mobility sector. This not only requires knowledge of digitization and automation, but also of "green" energy sources. The demand for traffic engineers with this knowledge increases every year.

In the degree program you will learn to consider the subject of transport from a technical, business, ecological and legal point of view and to develop modern transport and mobility concepts for passenger and goods transport. Team work, argumentation and presentation, but also independent problem solving are important components of the training. The course is characterized by the cross-modal training (road and rail traffic) as well as a practical semester in which the students can apply the knowledge they have acquired and learn new skills.

The course concludes after six semesters with a Bachelor of Engineering degree. If that's not enough for you, in the fifth semester you can switch to the diploma course in Traffic and Transport Engineering and expand the knowledge you have already acquired.

The course enables you to work independently on practice-related technical tasks in your job. As a result, there are very good entry opportunities and career prospects, mainly in the following areas:

  • Planning administration, e.g. B. Departments of Transport
  • Planning offices for traffic and mobility transport companies, e.g. B. the post office or the train
  • transport services
  • Traffic control centers and freight traffic centers
  • Industry

After completing the bachelor's degree, there is also the option of taking a master's degree, e.g. B. the master's degree in Road Traffic Engineering. In the fifth semester, you also have the opportunity to switch to the diploma course in Traffic and Transport Engineering and further deepen your knowledge.
