Master in Mobility Systems Engineering & Management (MSEM)
The Master Program MSEM offers a unique combination of courses in emerging technologies & systems engineering. Processes, methods and tools for the challenges of future mobility in e-drive, autonomous driving, communication-over-the-air, and worldwide release & configuration management are introduced on the engineering as well as on the management side.
Hot Topics in MSEM
Structure of MSEM Program:
*EM: Engineering Modules
Automotive Systems in times of Internet of Things (IoT) and Industry 4.0: Integration of Cyber Physical Systems & Big Data Handling
Systems Life Cycle Processes (from Waterfall to Scrum)
Automotive Standards & Applications (autonomous driving, alternative drivetrains and more)
Data Communication Topologies and Technologies
(e.g. CAN, Flexray or wireless/car2x, Ethernet)
Worldwide Release & Configuration Management
Testing 2.0 (beyond classical HiL)
Security & Safety (according to ISO26262, ASIL)
Process Maturity Level Assessments (CMMI, SPICE)
Analytics for Mobility Systems
Specialization Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)
Electronic systems are omnipresent. Currently they range from portable devices such as smart phones to large stationary installations like the systems controlling of power plants. Communication - stationary or over-the-air – of these particular systems form a network of control, sensing and influencing the environment. A cyber physical system is the result.
These trends fundamentally influence industry (industry 4.0) and mobility, mainly vehicles for automated driving, electrical drive trains and car-2-x communication. As a consequence, sustainable mobility concepts are increasingly using embedded electronic systems to maximize efficiency, enable automation and reduce pollution.

The content of the Master Program is divided into 10 modules:
5 Management Modules presents broader knowledge in management know-how and 5 Engineering Modules provides deeper knowledge in technological topics.
We offer a free Crash Course “Selected Topics of Electronic Engineering” (taking place from November 9 to November 13, 2020) and highly recommend to participate in the course to update the technical knowledge, as it might be the crucial factor for a successful degree at HECTOR School.
Processes, Methods & Tools of Systems Engineering

Applying: The application process will be proceeded as usual with some hygiene requirements: personal interviews will take place online for the moment.
Studying: Currently, we assume that the next intake will start regularly in October 2020.
In any case you can be sure that we will keep you updated and you will receive the excellent quality you can expect from HECTOR School and the KIT.
Professionals working in the development, production or integration of embedded systems within the following industries:
Automotive industry with suppliers, manufacturers, and service providers
Other vehicle industries (e.g. bike industry, ground support equipment, farm machines, automated guided vehicles)
Graduates of the new master program Mobility Systems Engineering & Management 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. Currently, KIT is ranked #1 in the employability ranking of Times Higher Education in Germany, #20 worldwide. The KIT Master of Science Degree will foster the graduates careers in the above named industries to a large extent.
„Studying Green Mobility Engineering at HECTOR School was the next step in a successful professional career for me. The five Engineering Modules give a deep insight into the new challenges of the automotive industry. Highly experienced lecturers show the state-of-the-art research in the topics of electro engines, batteries, but also cognitive systems or embedded systems. This broad variety of subjects combined with the five Management Modules with a lot of case studies are the perfect fundament for a further personnel development. On top, you are still able to continue your current job and to introduce the new methods to your daily business life.”

The Master Program is splitted in 5 Engineering and 5 Management Modules of 2 weeks, each over a period of 15 months. The modules are followed by a master thesis written in the company (MSEM: 9 months) and often used as a innovation project for the company. The overall duration is approx. 20 months.
The HECTOR School modules take place in Karlsruhe on the campus of the International Department. It contains seminar rooms, accommodation facilities and is situated directly next to the KIT campus and in the center of the city.
