Program Description

Master in Mobility Systems Engineering and Management (part-time)

HECTOR School of Engineering and Management

Master Program in Mobility Systems Engineering and Management

Part-time further qualification for engineers.

Electronic systems are omnipresent. They range from portable devices, such as digital watches and smartphones, to large stationary installations like factory controllers or power plant control systems.

The graduates of the Mobility Systems Engineering and Management master program receive a unique interdisciplinary education in systems engineering and state-of-the-art technologies in autonomous driver assistance systems or e-mobility at one of the best technical universities worldwide.

Under the master program, knowledge is acquired on:

  • automotive systems in times of Internet of Things (IoT)
  • systems life cycle processes
  • analytics for mobility systems
  • specialization: Advanced Driver Assistance Systems
  • specialization: e-Mobility

In addition, knowledge of the product development process and the necessary management skills are conveyed.

Target Group

Future engineering executives in the branches of development and production of embedded systems. Typical lines of business may include automotive suppliers, automotive manufacturers, railway industry, measurement technology, cybernetics and sensor technology, semi-conductor industry, mobile communications, medical technology, etc.

Come by on our HECTOR Open Day to get first-hand information on the program and talk to students, as well as HECTOR representatives.


The Executive M.Sc. Program for Mobility Systems Engineers provides deep insights into new methods of product development, new materials and technologies, and applications of embedded systems for wireless and optical communication, signal processing and integrated systems.

A special focus lies on either a specialization in advanced driver assistance systems or e-mobility. Knowledge of driver assistance systems for autonomous driving or the electric powertrain is an ever-growing necessity.

Focus of the Program

The program is designed to train interdisciplinary systems-oriented understanding and thinking and will focus on:

  • System-level and application-oriented theoretical models
  • modern design methods, methodology, and hardware/software architectures
  • selected key technologies

Fields of application are:

  • Car-to-X communication
  • Driver assistance systems
  • Energy supply, storage & conversion

To understand the emerging potentials of innovative technologies and materials, a new generation of engineers must be trained in system engineering.
