The focus of the master's degree program Green Mobility is on electric mobility as a holistic concept for individual transport and thus provides a basis for establishing this concept in Austria. The central starting point is the technical components for hybrid and electric vehicles, their interfaces and the infrastructure required for operation. This degree program stands out through its combination of business administration, environmental and legal know-how.

You have already acquired extensive knowledge of electronics and electrical engineering. Environmental protection is important to you and you want to contribute to social change in this area in particular. You approach challenges strategically and conceptually. You are interested in the various technical, environmental and economic aspects of mobility and wish to contribute as a generalist to establishing electric mobility in Austria.
You meet the formal admission requirements with a bachelor or graduate studies degree at a university with a total of 180 ECTS, with at least 30 ECTS in Electrical / Electronics / Physics / Mechatronics, at least 10 ECTS in computer science / programming / information technology and 10 ECTS in Economics / Management.
Your education and research will benefit from the modern infrastructure such as the network and electronic laboratories of the main FH Campus Wien campus. FH Campus Wien is one of the largest universities of applied sciences in Austria and as a multidisciplinary university has established extensive technical expertise that is contributed to by partnerships with numerous leading companies and universities. FH Campus Wien focuses on the interfaces of the disciplines and future fields such as sustainability. Particularly in research, as a student you will have the opportunity to build your profile and as part of your master's thesis to be involved in FH Campus Wien research fields such as Smart and Green Technologies. Furthermore, at the FH Campus Wien competence centers research is conducted in current and practically relevant topics from the fields of IT security and safety that are crucial for reliable applications in the automotive sector. Practical relevance is also guaranteed at our Campus Lecture, public lecture evenings with prominent experts, that FH Campus Wien regularly invites you to join.
This technical degree program focuses on electric mobility as a holistic concept for private transport. Unlike in Germany, there is currently no other comparable degree program offered at an Austrian institute of higher education. Through the degree program you will become a generalist, who in addition to possessing sound technical expertise, is also familiar with the entire mobility environment and qualified to assume responsibility for strategy, concept and implementation. You will learn to analyze business scenarios in terms of whether they are technically feasible, environmentally acceptable and economically viable.As a graduate you will have the know-how to serve as the crucial interface to other major players. Because in addition to a reliable and extensively accessible charging infrastructure, a comprehensive mobility package also includes initiatives for extensive cooperation between service providers of public transport, car sharing, motoring clubs or entire regions.
In the master’s degree program you will acquire detailed technical knowledge about the necessary components of hybrid and electric vehicles and the infrastructure that is required for operation. The teaching content ranges from energy storage and energy management in the vehicle, powertrain, electronics system to bus systems and the related data communication all the way to safety in the automotive sector. In addition to an intensive examination of individual vehicle components and their interfaces, you will learn the advantages and disadvantages of different charging technologies and the associated charging infrastructure.
You will benefit from the examination of already realized mobility concepts as best practice and acquire business skills and knowledge in the areas of project, process and quality management in order to successfully plan and implement mobility concepts. In addition to environmental contexts, legal aspects in the field of electric mobility are an important focus of the master’s degree program in Green Mobility.

The European Union is promoting electric mobility on a large scale. In Austria, the National Action Plan for 2020 defines the target that every fifth vehicle should have at least a partially electric drive. By that time, it is predicted that there will be a demand of around 3,600 full-time employees in the electric vehicle sector alone. Under these conditions, the opportunity is given to sustainably establish electric mobility in Austria. In addition to a reliable and extensively accessible charging infrastructure, this will require generalists with sound technical and interdisciplinary know-how, practical orientation and visions. Their task will be to launch initiatives, form alliances and to lead projects to success together.
As a generalist, you will also be qualified for technical sales, product-, project-, process- and quality management or business development and to assume responsibility in these areas. In addition, you will act at the interface of research and development in electric mobility.
Equivalence is determined by international agreements, validation or in individual cases a decision by the head of the academic section.
To apply you will require the following documents:
Please noteIt is not possible to save incomplete online applications. You must complete your application in one session. Your application will be valid as soon as you upload all of the required documents and certificates. In the event that some documents (e.g. references) are not available at the time you apply, you may submit these later via e-mail, mail or in person by no later than the start of the degree program.
The selection process assesses your aptitude for the master's degree program. It consists of a written test and an interview. The date for the selection process will be announced by the secretary's office.
