Master in Green Mobility Engineering (GME)

Even in Central Europe the climate change has become a reality by now. Therefore, for the future it is increasingly urgent to develop renewable and climate-friendly technologies for individual and public mobility. In order to bring innovative mobility concepts successfully to the market, GME combines technical subjects with economic and legal aspects in a unique way.

Hot Topics in GME

Hot Topics in Green Mobility Engineering

  • Automotive systems in times of Internet of Things & Industry 4.0: Integration of Cyber Physical Systems & Big Data Handling
  • Powertrain concepts: IC Gasoline, Diesel Engines, alternative fuels & powertrains
  • Electric Power Train: Concepts, architectures, technologies (e.g. signal processing, real time systems) & design of electrical drive systems & complex electronic systems
  • Energy supply, storage & conversion (e.g. batteries, fuel cells, H² storage, powertrain systems)
  • Driver assistance systems (incl. sensors & systems, security aspects)
  • Environment perception (optical sensors & systems, impact security, comfort & efficiency)
  • Vehicle traffic interaction, e.g. automotive radar technology and car-to-X communication
  • Safety & security (e.g. effects of force transmission)
  • Automotive control systems (BUS systems, automotive controllers)

Target Group

Target Group

Professionals working as high potentials, project managers or engineering executives in companies with the scope of future mobility systems, e.g.:


  • Automotive systems and subsystems
  • Development, production, logistics, and services of "green technologies"


Career Perspectives

About one-third of all energy consumed in a country is attributed to mobility. Transport emissions strongly influence global warming and air quality. Thus, mankind will naturally strive for "green" mobility systems. This vision of eco-friendly, sustainable, safe, comfortable and affordable mobility requires engineers who are committed and excellently qualified to develop innovative mobility technologies.

Alumni Voices

„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.”
