Mobility is omnipresent in our lives and an essential prerequisite for social life, opening up opportunities for activities in other places. What we need to achieve is that people can get to those places in such a way that we can still enjoy them. This is what Transportation Management stands for.
The limited supply of roads, railroads, tracks in the face of an increasing demand for transport ... something doesn't add up: Cities are literally bursting at the seams. It is time-consuming, expensive and, in cities, often impossible to build new transport infrastructure. Mobility must regain its quality, be sustainable, efficient, and effective. What is needed is an integrated view of mobility as an overall system with the central aspects of people, means of transport, structural-technical infrastructure, digital equipment and mobility culture.
The Master's degree program in Transportation Management develops new approaches and opportunities in research and development of sustainable mobility with feedback into teaching and application, nationally as well as internationally. With these approaches, we want to bring the mobility of the future forward and network in the sub-areas of research, politics, administration, engineering offices, and commercial enterprises.
